'I started out many years ago listening to and loving Redd's songs. I met my future wife at a country dance hall in a small town when I asked her to dance with me to the 'Tennessee Waltz.' That was 45 years ago, and we're still happily married today!
I still love and hold that song dear in my heart. I will hold all of his songs in my heart and memory until the day I die.' (Gene Smith/Alexander, AR)
