'Your dad was a real gentleman, and we visited quite a bit in the 70's. I was president of Southern Productions at that time, with offices on Hayes Street in the west end of Nashville.
Your dad was a very thoughtful person, and I will always remember Christmas of 73' he made a special effort to bring me a present. He certainly should be in the Country Music Hall of Fame. Besides, he wrote the state song of Tennessee.' (John Bodin/Wray, GA)
