This country legend is 90 this weekend.
He was born in Texas and began recording in 1956. Four years later he moved to Nashville, Tennessee. From 1970, he was often in financial trouble first due to bad investments in various tours that did make good returns. In 1990, many of his assets were seized because of unpaid taxes to the tune of $32m. The sum was soon cleared following the sale of the aforementioned assets at auction.
He is still recording and usual involves his family who record with him. He has been releasing albums since 1962 and his latest, I Don’t Know a Thing About Love is released this year.
Let’s enjoy the title track from his 61st studio album in 2013.
