Yesterday was the 2 year anniversary of Johnny’s passing. Respects were paid by news, radio and television outlets across the nation from the Legendary WSM (Home of the Grand Ole Opry) to KWKH in Shreveport, LA (The home of the Louisiana Hayride broadcast during the 50’s and 60’s). There was even a heart warming commentary by Governor Mike Huckabee on his radio show, The Mike Huckabee Show.
