Answer is D-also known as The Possum and in his latter years No Show George. Song Title is: He stopped loving her today from his 1980 Album “I am what I am”. He is well known for his turbulent marriage to Tammy Wynette. Unfortunately, George admittedly had a huge alcohol problem. In late 1980 he married for the final time and tried to get sober. He died in April 2013 at age 81. Remarkable for someone of his talent in the Country Music Scene for 50 years.

See YOU!

This song was a challenge I know and a tough one. The group “Skylark” is a Canadian band and this song although beautifully written and composed stemming from a poem written by a band members friend to his girlfriend. Released in 1973. Go to You Tube and listen to the original version, it is lyrically a great song! On keyboards is “David Foster” the well known pianist, composer, producer, songwriter who has worked with some of the greatest singers in the world and still does. It is a special song to my parents and their era! Song is called “Wildflower”.

See YOU!

All those lives lost that day were going to work, at work, doing their business as usual. That song took ACM’s and CMA’s awards in 2002 (Song of the Year, Single of the Year) and he also received a Grammy.
