Webb Michael Pierce (8 de agosto de 1921 - 24 de febrero de 1991) fue uno de los cantantes estadounidenses de honky tonk más populares en la década de los años 1950, poniendo en listas un mayor número de canciones que cualquier otro artista country de esa década.

Su mayor éxito fue "In the jailhouse now" que estuvo 37 semanas en la cartelera, 21 de ellas como número 1. Pierce también tuvo como número uno durante varias semanas canciones como "Slowly" (1954), "Love, Love, Love" (1955), "I Don't Care" (1955), "There Stands The Glass" (1953), "More And More" (1954), "I Ain't Never" (1959) y su primer número uno "Wondering," qeu lo fue durante 4 de las 27 semanas que permaneció en las listas

Para muchos, Pierce, con su flamante estilo fue la cara más reconocible de la música country del momento y sus excesos.[1] Fue miembro del Grand Ole Opry y a título póstumo del Country Music Hall of Fame.
