Kelly, Jones, "Paul Bearer," and Norton I never saw a single headline about but most of the others were pretty big news. Clancy probably got the least amount of coverage from those remaining, but though I forgot about him I do remember hearing something earlier this year.

"White Lightning" for George Jones? Really? Big Bopper did it first. Instead, how about the best country song of all time, the No-Show Ol' Possum's "He Stopped Lovin' Her Today"? (We had a 'possum who came on our porch every night and ate our cat food. We called him George Jones. Later a female started coming with him and we christened her Tammy.) Nobody sang country like George Jones and Tammy Wynette.
