    It’s another sad day in the history of real country music. Carl Smith has been a favorite of mine as long as I can remember and I still play his music at least once a week or so. He will live forever in my memory.

    A great recording artist and one whose music still evokes the memory of a time when distinctive vocalist ruled the roost rather than the current cookie-cutter voices of most of today’s male vocalists

    Great video clips

    I’m sorry to hear this.

    I’m not familiar with his music (although these links are a good start – thanks), but it saddens me that we have lost another country legend. Pretty soon there’s going to be none left. RIP.
