Trivia for November 6

Category: News/Trivia

Stonewall Jackson was born on this date in 1932. The performer of such country classics as "Waterloo," "Don't Be Angry," and "A Wound Time Can't Erase" turns 75.

Stonewall was the first artist in Grand Ole Opry history to become a member of the Opry without a recording contract. Sad to say, he is now embroiled in a lawsuit against the institution that once welcomed him because of his great country sound. Jackson's lawsuit alleges that the current Opry management told him he was "too old and too country."

Not in my book he isn't. Happy birthday, Stonewall!
