  1. What a fantastic artist he was; I’ve always loved his music, and him. He was a great guy. Our local radio station plays his music often; what a winner he was!
    Great post, Cheryl… 🙂

    • Hi Carolyn. Over the years I have only heard nice things about him. He was very well liked and so very talented. If I am not mistaken he was in the movie True Grit with John Wayne many years ago. Thank you for taking the time to stop by : )
