Porter Wagoner Dead at 80

Posted: Oct 30, 2007

Porter Wagoner died Sunday in Nashville. He was 80 and lived in Nashville.

He had been hospitalized with lung cancer earlier this month.

Mr. Wagoner had 81 singles on the country charts, including 29 Top 10 records. His hits included “Green, Green Grass of Home,” “Skid Row Joe” and “The Cold Hard Facts of Life.” He was famous for capturing straight up the raw emotions of people living tough lives, sometimes using his speaking voice in an old-time country technique called recitation.

We will miss you Porter.

Keep it Real. Keep it Southern.
