Jack Greene’s career started with Earnest Tubb as guitar player, drummer, singer and emcee. At Tubb’s urging, he pursued a solo career that sky rocketed in 1967 with the song, “There Goes My Everything.” The tune was number one for 7 weeks and led him to become the CMA’s 1st Male Vocalist of the Year. It also earned album and song of the year.
Greene passed away at age 83 from complications associated with Alzheimers. Services will be at the Ryman Auditorium.
