I'm impressed...figured this would be too obscure even for this astute company.Took me a minute...
Sorta - Merle Ronald Haggard (April 6, 1937 - April 6, 2016)Oh
Doesn't that qualify as a trick question ?
And Merle Haggard didn't jump off a bridge
Bah - if I had never made a miscue, then you would have never been able to teach me anything...Gulp :???:
I remember the song and Bobbie Gentry but am awful about dates and when I googled "country music star died today" it really did come up with Merle Haggard. But my first guess was Barbara Mandrell... next time I'll keep my mouth shut
I did some work at Bobbie Gentrys' house when she lived in LA and was still big time. I never got to see her though. LA was interesting that way. I installed Lana Woods phone, never saw her either. Got to meet J Carrol Naish at a wedding reception, a really nice man. If you went to the employment office in Santa Monica you would see a lot of character actors that had appeared in a lot of B westerns standing in the unemployment line.I had the "hots" for BG, even though I was pretty young at the time.
