    Another one of West Virginia's Favorite Son's "Little Jimmy Dickens" passed at age 94. T.Texas Tyler was one of Jimmy Dicken's Hero's. The Linville Sisters, my mother, Dollie Linville Hill and her sister Ruth Linville sang on "The Old Farm Hour" with Litttle Jimmy Dickens and T.Texas Tyler. When Mother's Sister Ruth was struck and killed by a drunk driver. T.Texas Tyler wrote a song about Ruth mother's sister. "The Buried Her Beneath The Willows" T.Texas Tyler, as mom related to me, really loved Ruth's talent to sing and play the Mandolin. Mother and Ruth sang, also, on the program with Grand Paw Jones. Had Ruth not died in that horrible accident, they would have probably been on The Grand Ole Opry.
    The night before Ruth was killed, they were attending a Revival in their home community, at The Woodville Elementary School. She, Ruth and a bunch of their friends were going to the Altar, when the invitation was given, when one of her friends said, 'Dollie let's don't get saved tonight, let's go to Madison and go dancing. They all turned and walked out and the very next night in sight of The Woodville School, where the Revival was going on, her sister was struck and killed.
    Guy Gillenwater came along and took the back seat of his car, to place mother's sister Ruth on. As mother knelt over her dying sisters body, mother cried out to Jesus and her heart to Jesus. Mother, always wondered if her sister had time to repent and felt she was responsible for her sister not going to the Altar the night before. That was the end of Mother and Ruth, The Linville Sisters Singing. We Salute The Memory of lil Jimmy Dickens. RIP╩ - Avis Hill -

    From: julie - Please can you granny used to sing this to me when i was very young and Id like to find out the title & who sings this song: thank you!
    My Pa was born in Texas, my Ma in Tennessee
    They were married in the summer of 1883.
    They moved to California the place where I was born
    In a long covered wagon, on a bright September morn'.

    My cradle was my saddle, my play things a gun.
    And shooting at the rattle-snakes, was my idea of fun.
    Till at the age of seventeen, was then I left my home.
    The open range was calling, and my time had come to roam.

    I met a pretty maiden, the flower of the plain.
    I married her one morning, which shows I had no brain.
    She said she was a maiden, but oh how she did lie.
    Before the honey-moon was over, seven kids were by her side.

    I was very disappointed, but then I didn't mind.
    I still remained her husband, honest true and kind.
    Until one day I found her upon a strangers knee.
    As a long lost cousin, I was introduced to him.
    I knew that she was lying, so I pulled my gun and said
    You sneaking low down coyote, and I filled her full of lead.
    The judge he found me guilty, he sentenced me for life.
    But I'd rather be in prison, than with a worthless wife.

    Hello everyone, I'm a semi-retired broadcaster in Tallahassee, Fla. I never worked at a country station so now I am finally doing what I love. My station is called Big D Country and plays country from the early 50s to the present. It is heard on Live365, TuneIn and Radio Terra.
    It is Internet only but I am working hard to get a noncommercial FM station on the air here as we no longer have classic country in the market. I welcome requests and will do my best to get them on the air. I also host a country gospel show on Sunday mornings.
    I would welcome any support the country community can offer. Website is and my email is
    When I was about 12 I went to a concert featuring Connie Smith, Tom T Hall, Johnny Rodriquez and about six others. Fell in love with country music and still love it today. Thanks! Alan McCall -

    I have a friend who is of a certain age now but still quite, beautiful. I know her as Connie Burns but she was happily married to the late, great "Happy Hal" Burns, a well known singer on the "Country Boy Eddy Show" here in Birmingham which was on television for at least 30 years. Mr. Burns was also well known in Memphis.
    Connie was in a movie, I believe about Ernest Tubbs, but I can't find a copy of it. She was only about 16 when she was in the movie; a beautiful blonde who probably sang.
    I was in a church group with her which went to entertain at nursing homes every Monday, but she fell last season and hasn't been able to come back. She was always introduced as a movie star and the wife of Mr. Burns, which thrilled her.
    Does anyone know where I can find a copy of this movie? I know her church would have a celebration for her, as she misses being without her music. Thank you! Joan S. Brooks -

    Would love to get the lyrics for a charming humorous song my mother (May God Bless her Memory) used to sing as follows:
    "When I was a young girl....
    Now I am marrried a husband to please....
    Then Came Children one by one...
    Wash them, dress them, put them into bed...
    Oh, I wish that I was dead..."
    At age 77 my own memory is not as sharp as when I was six or seven and first heard the song sung by my mother. Is there a way you can recapture the lyrics of this lovely song? My wife of 50 years -- and a musician -- would like to know the lyrics.of the song that I can only remember -- in parts. Thanks, Karl Folkes

    The song of Darrell McCalls 11 Roses has been running through my head ever since I heard him sing it on Family Reunion. I wrote another verse..Just so I could sing it. I dont expect him to like it ok Take the roses and look into the future, I'm so sorry for the hurt I brought to you. Just remember I'm the one who sent the roses,and its because I still love you too. I love country music and the traditional kind is more my favorite but hes got the talent. Thank you for listening. Kate Wonders? -

    Hello. My father wrote and recorded several songs in the late 40s and into the 50s, including one that is on a CD, Hixville....his name was Otis Parker. He and my mother divorced when I was 12 and I didn't see him for many years. He had moved to Reno and was performing and recording there under the name of Jimmy Parker (his full name was James Otis Parker).
    We had several of his old records but in the 70s someone broke into our home and busted all of them to pieces. I saw my father twice in my adulthood, once when he was hospitalized in Nashville and we picked him up and took him home, and then a couple of years later I went to his funeral.
    I do have some of his later music which he recorded while living in Nevada, but it's his early recordings I am looking for. We lived in many cities and he recorded something in just about every one of them, since he worked for radio stations and had access to recording studios. He was born and raised right outside of Nashville and when he and my mother first married in the 40s he was working for the Opry. If anyone has anything that you think might would be my fathers work, I would love to hear from you. Cheryl Parker (repost due to change of email) CHERYL PARKER -

Not a County singer which I kind of wish he was, maybe my song would be out there now, although I have written songs for him. He sings with a group called Rockapella. The group sings Acapellla. Back in 1996, I wrote a country song, and had it copywrited. My son said that song was good. He said I should check into getting some to sing and record this song. I never did anything with the song. I do have a tune to it, and basically looking for a Country Singer/Artist who my be interested in the song. I feel it is pretty good. May be a hit someday. (Smile) Can anyone point me in the right direction in getting a contact?
    My mother always told me you have to believe in something in order for it to happen, but most of all, keep the faith. If you are out there, let me hear from you. Thanks a million! Carol A. Ennis -

    DICK CURLESS, in his final recording session, did a jaw-dropping version of the "Freight Train Blues." "Rattlesnakin' Daddy" and "Snap Your Fingers" are other favorites of mine from that album. I prefer to think of Mr. Curless in the present tense, and he's among the greats.
    This is a limerick I wrote about that underrated artist.
    "We have all heard the name Bobby Darin, / And in country, a man known as Faron. / I preferred the vibrato, / Ligato, bravado / Of one man from Maine called 'The Baron.'"

    I've been trying to find out some info about a group that filmed a music video back some where around 1986-1989 at the Ryman Auditorium and I thought perhaps you might know where I could go to check out some archives from that time. I don't have the name of the band just a few lines from their song. I've been web searching for some time now and your website was one of the few that had a contact e-mail. I realize this is a strange question but I'm hoping you might be able to give me some info or a link that could help me. I sure would be thankful. Sincerely, Rozanne -

    Hi: I am trying to locate a singer or songwriter who would have been about 30-40 in 1966. He went by the name of Soogie Smith or Suggie Smith. We think his name might have been Raymond Smith. Was at one time married to a Marlyn Bogan Calloway from Borger, Texas. They had a son who never knew anything until recently. The son would like to meet the Dad if we can find. The son is my niece's husband. The person we are trying to find was aware he had a son. A divorce took place when the child was about 18 months old. If someone has any idea who this man might be and if he has any interest please email me. Cheryl Brenner -

    Hello. My father wrote and recorded several songs in the late 40s and into the 50s, including one that is on a CD, Hixville....his name was Otis Parker. He and my mother divorced when I was 12 and I didn't see him for many years. He had moved to Reno and was performing and recording there under the name of Jimmy Parker (his full name was James Otis Parker).
    We had several of his old records but in the 70s someone broke into our home and busted all of them to pieces. I saw my father twice in my adulthood, once when he was hospitalized in Nashville and we picked him up and took him home, and then a couple of years later I went to his funeral.
    I do have some of his later music which he recorded while living in Nevada, but it's his early recordings I am looking for. We lived in many cities and he recorded something in just about every one of them, since he worked for radio stations and had access to recording studios. He was born and raised right outside of Nashville and when he and my mother first married in the 40s he was working for the Opry. If anyone has anything that you think might would be my fathers work, I would love to hear from you. Cheryl Parker -

    I am charter board member Of Rock Country Hall of fame, now known as Mid America Music Hall Of Fame. Established in1999, we are now in our 10th production year. (1 year was taken off to accomplish new goals: we no longer use outside facilities, but will now use our own facility located in Pine River, Mn.) As a musician and music collector (records, posters, cards, media articles, etc.) I was enlited to join the founders and have since become research director, photographer, and PR expert. Among my duties, I am a go-fer, advisor, and do other needed things such as promotion.
    This year starts a new 'chapter' in our format and mine as well. We are requesting all musicians, both those already on our roster as well as new comers, to provide us with their email addresses. We no longer will be sending snail-mail invitations. This is due to cost and expediancy considerations. Everything seems to be done now via computer. Those familiar with us know we are still an honorarium organization dedicated to recognition of musicians and music related entities for their contribution, large or small, to Minnesotas music industry. Included are those from other states who have contributed or have ties to the Minn. music scene. These are our fellow musicians from N.Dak, S. Dak, Iowa, Wisc, and others states (Canada) who have played here or recorded here.
    Should you have any interest in this type of organization, please be aware that we have in the past years inducted the likes of Bob Dylan, Bobby Vee, Dave Dudley, The Green Men, Unbelievable Ugles, Tornados, Canoise, Lynn Anderson, Larry Vern, Whiskey River, Big John Dickerson, Willy Walker, and countless others, including the likes of Arnie Fogel, Amos Heilcher (SOMA records), and so many more. Please feel free to email me at or call me, Larry at 218-820-8303 for further info. Other sources for contact are Doug, 218-820-8301 and Cindy, 218-820-8302. We welcome any & all input or recommendations as to inductees. Since we are an open honorarium, we include rock and roll of the 50s-80s, as well as classic country, blues and other music of years gone by. Music often knows no boundaries and often is picked up by succeeding generations. We try to exclude nobody nor any style.
    Also, any collectible items looking for a home can be mentioned to me for my personal collection, or, in the event our museum efforts stabilize, may be donated for loan to the MAMHOF. Check out our current museum offerings, located in Albert Lea at the Eddie Cochran Museum.
    Let's hear from and and we hope you all keep rockin' bringing live music to all. Larry Beckner -

I would call many of these events miracles or most of them, actually. I started writing a book in 2001, I have journals kept while on the road and most of them were during the last year and one half as I worked for Bill Monroe as Diana Christian.
