Remembering Country singer Carl Milton Smith today (March 15th, 1927 – January 16th, 2010) #carlsmith#honkytonk
Remembering Country and Western singer, and cousin of Woody Guthrie, Leon Jerry "Jack" Guthrie today (November 13th, 1915 – January 15th, 1948) Pictured here with pals Ernest Tubb (middle) and Cliffie Stone (far left). Jack's recordings for Capitol are top notch, not a bad one among them. Sadly, Jack was taken too soon and died from tuberculosis, the same as his hero Jimmie Rodgers did, on January 15th, 1948. Jack recorded a great blend of Honky Tonk, Country Boogie, and Western Swing tunes. All 3 Bear Family releases on Jack's career are well worth having. #jackguthrie#oakiejack ...
Sad to hear that songwriter and musician Sanger D. "Whitey" Shafer passed away yesterday. Whitey wrote songs and hits for Lefty Frizzell, George Jones, Moe Bandy, George Strait, Johnny Russell, Merle Haggard, Johnny Rodriguez and many others. RIP Whitey (October 24th, 1934 - January 12th, 2019) #whiteyshafer#countrymusic
