Fiddler & the Rose
During May of 2003, I lost my mother-in-law, June Carter Cash, who passed away from a heart condition, That following September, my father-in-law, Johnny Cash, passed away from respiratory failure brought on by complications from diabetes. Then in October, i lost my wife, Rosey Carter, and my good frined Jimmy Campbell who passed away from accidental carbon monoxide poisoniong. Rosey was June's second daugther by her second husband Rip Nix. Jimmy Campbell was Bill Monroe's fiddle player. Since then, we have lost many other great men of music: Grammy Award Winner, Bob House (Could i Have This Dance), Merle Kilgore, and Wayne Rockingham Brown. This CD is in their memory.
