Old Country & Western singers
I was a young teenager when I first heard Slim Whitman, and since then he has been my favourite singer of all time. (now I am really showing my age) I like all the old time country singers, all of them are American or Canadian. I like Hank Snow, Charlie Pride, Hank Locklin, Johnny Cash, and a few others, not keen at all on the newer ones. I went to see some of them when they toured the UK. I know Slim Whitman, and Johnny Cash are dead, can anyone tell me what has happened to all the others, I never hear about them in the UK. I still have, and play a lot of their records. Hank Locklin was the best singer I have ever seen on stage, he sang none stop for about 2 hours and was just as good as his records. Slim Whitman also sang as good as his records, and his backing group was unbelievable.
I would really like to know about them.
