We say farewell to an American Songwriter " Don Chapel ", writer of "When The Grass Grows Over Me". I met Don in Nashville, TN on June 5, 2014. He was thrilled that we had recorded his song. Here's a photo of our very first meeting. He was so kind, and I was so excited to meet the man who wrote such legendary songs. As we talked, he told me how he was once married to Tammy Wynette, and how he had heard the magic of the voices of Tammy and George Jones, when they first sang together. That's a classy man, who though heartbroken over his marriage, still shows tremendous respect for the legacy of music left in the duets of Tammy & George. He loved to tell about his witness to what we know as historical moments in country music history. How fun to have actually experienced those moments first hand. He ask me a few months ago, if I would sing as his final farewell. On Friday evening, I will have the extreme honor of singing his song as his service, to be held at the Madison Funeral Home. Rest In Sweet Peace!
