Country Artists We’ve Lost in 2013: Jack Greene

Jack Greene

Grand Ole Opry legend Jack Greene died on March 14, 2013 after a battle with Alzheimer’s. The “Jolly Green Giant” was known for his stature, as well as for being the first-ever CMA Male Vocalist of the Year. His hit ‘There Goes My Everything’ also took home Single and Album of the Year honors in 1967. Later, he’d record chart-toppers like ‘You Are My Treasure’ and ‘Until My Dreams Come True,’ as well as his signature tune ‘Statue of a Fool.’ Greene appeared at the Opry through December 2011, when he closed his career with ‘There Goes My Life.’
