The news broke overnight that former Grand Ole Opry member Holly Dunn has passed away at the age of 59. She passed away from ovarian cancer.
Holly joined the Grand Ole Opry on October 14, 1989, during the Opry's 64th birthday bash. She left Nashville in 2003, moving to New Mexico, as she retired from the music business to fulfill her dreams of being an artist. Several years after she moved, the Opry dropped her membership.
Personally, Holly was one of my favorites. I always enjoyed seeing her on the Opry and in my opinion, she did a nice job hosting segments and in hosting the backstage show. Her huge hit, "Daddy's Hands" launched a career that saw a number of her singles hitting the charts.
Our prayers and thoughts go to Holly's family and friends.
