Ellsworth Rand was a country music singer in the 1930s-60s. Along with his wife Millie, and his two sons Gary and Bob, Ells traveled the country singing country western music.

Ellsworth's son Gary had a daughter, Hannah. Hannah didn't get to know Ells very well, since he died when she was three, but she can feel his musical genes inside of her. The name Ellsworth was chosen to honor his legacy, and the music that he inspires.
