Porter Wagoner. Boy, you all are going back a ways! Porter was born in 1927 and died in 2007. He was old-school country. He played on various radio shows, with and without his band for several years and recorded records too. He had a TV show for many years, although it was syndicated, not network, and not available everywhere. I remember watching it as a child in black and white. I've seen reruns of some of those old shows not too long ago...I think maybe RFD-TV carries reruns. I remember Dolly Parton, who pretty much got her big break due to Wagoner, singing solos and duets with Porter and also doing live commercials for Breeze laundry detergent. The largest boxes contained a free towel. "Free...in boxes of Breeze", Parton would say in her TN twang.
Parton later wrote "I Will Always Love You" for Porter, not because she was in love with him but because they had decided to go their separate ways musically and she was grateful for all he had done for her career. He had also encouraged her to write more love songs so this was her response to that request.
He was a trip in his sequin-trimmed jackets and his greased back, pompadour hair. But if you were into country or gospel back then, he had some good tunes.
I don't think the Carroll Co. Accident had anything to do with KY although it was about a car accident. The song was out in the late 60's, I think. I'm not sure any one's sure whether the song's title referred to Carroll Co. TN or MS...but it wasn't KY. I think the song was a fictional story and in his travels from show to show, Porter saw Carroll Co. signs in more than one state and just liked the alliteration.
Wagoner stayed in the music business almost until his death. He played with the Grand Old Opry and made albums. He also helped new talent get started. But But if you're in your 40's, you'd have missed a lot of prime Porter though I think he was still on TV at least till the late 70's in some markets.
Lots more than you cared to know, huh? Sorry! I'm old! This is stuff I remember! LOL
I find very few people worthy of reading on topix, but you always a pleasure to read from.

Thank you. "In The Mood" still remains my favorite though by Glenn Miller.
