'There are few that become so well known and appreciated by so many. Music is a direct path to our hearts and to our soul. Redd's music has inspired those who love Country music throughout his life, and this musical legacy will continue to be an inspiration to many more for years to come.
Who that loves our music, has not heard 'The Tennessee Waltz' and not felt a twinge in their eye and felt thoughts of great love, great loss and memories of times past. Redd was a great musician who understood our hearts before knowing him.' (Gary Smith)
