    Ferlin performing his 1964 country hit [Billboard #13] in the 1965 movie “Forty Acre Feud.” He played a dual role in that film performing as himself and comic alter-ego Simon Crum (seen wearing a hat in several cut away camera shots during the song)

    Ferlin enjoyed a long career charting 51 songs between 1953 and 1975. Though he only scored 11 top ten hits (including 2 as “Simon Crum”) all three of his #1 singles became classics – “A Dear John Letter” (with Jean Shepard), “Gone” & “Wings Of A Dove,” He passed away at the age of 85 in 2011.
