'I want you to know that I absolutely LOVE his songs and my personal favorite, and one that I hope to include on my traditional album some day is, 'Tennessee Waltz.' I used to sing it for a dear old friend of mine. He was 85 years old and it was his favorite song because it brought back memories of his dearly departed wife.
We cried many times together when I sang that beautiful song for him. I actually sang it for him at the hospital on his last night on this earth. I sang for him for about an hour and a half, and 2 hours later he passed on.
It is a good memory, and I know the song gave him release. It is a blessing to have someone who was so talented and left us with art like Redd did.' (Joanne Myrol (musician)/Alberta Canada)
