He was great! He did a cover of one of my favorite songs, Paul McCartney's, "Mull of Kintyre," in which he sang and played the bagpipes.

We watched his documentary. He was great in the original 'True Grit.'
Help!

I'm not a fan of country music, but I did like him. I had a girl tell me one time.....a LONG time ago....... that I favored him, which I considered to be a compliment. I think it was the hair??? :lol:

I only learned quite recently what a fabulous guitarist he was and how many records he'd played on, from frank Sinatra to the Monkees. I used to think he was just a cheesy singer. This happens a lot in country music, that underneath the showmanship there's some amazing musical talent.
