Ruby Wright Dies

Category: News/Obituary

Ruby Wright had but one hit, an answer song to Roger Miller's smash "Dang Me." Her version was called "Dern Ya." With only that one hit, Ruby still had quite a record in country music, as she was the child of royalty. Her parents were Johnnie Wright and "Queen of Country Music" Kitty Wells.

Ruby Wright was found dead in her apartment in suburban Nashville on September 29th. The suspected cause of death was heart-related, as she had dealt with heart problems for many years.

She is survived by both parents, 95-year-old Johnnie and 90-year-old Kitty. Ruby was 69.
