No, I did not forget. One of the legendary members of the Grand Ole Opry, and my personal favorite (which some people cannot understand), Hank Snow was born on this date 101 years ago today. He joined the Grand Ole Opry in January 1950 and passed away in December 1999, just two weeks before his 50th anniversary as an Opry member.
During his career, he had 88 singles on the country charts and recorded 45 studio albums. 7 of those singles reached #1. He had an amazing career and actually, a pretty amazing life. His autobiography is one of the best out there.
One of Hank's best friends was Marty Robbins. Here is a classic clip that I have posted in honor of Clarence Eugene Snow, the Singing Ranger Hank Snow.
