Porter Wagoner (Friday 12 August 1927 - Sunday 28 October 2007)

‘I was thinking of Porter Wagoner, who was born on this day (12 August) in 1927 in West Plains, MO.

In 1967, Porter introduced Dolly Parton to his television audience.

Porter passed in 2007 from lung cancer, but he left us his great music’
