Tony Douglas is best known for his hit song 'His and Hers,' which was a Top 30 song in 1963. Over the next several decades he'd reach national fame only a handful of other times, but he made a significant impact on the Texas Country scene. Before Douglas died on Jan. 22, 2013, he enjoyed a long career in the south, including a stint at the Louisiana Hayride. He famously turned down a contract from the Grand Ole Opry because he didn't want to leave Texas for Tennessee. Douglas died at the age of 83 after a battle with lymphoma.
