I am a Vietnam vet. His song Hello Vietnam means a great deal to me because I lost a girl I still love which I have not seen or heard from since 1968 because she was against the Vietnam war. I listen to that song and think of her. Thank you Johnny, rest in peace.

I just learned of the loss of this beloved country music icon today. Kitty died a week ago, and I fondly recall in 2004 seeing them tour with Bill Anderson among other greats. What struck me the most was how after being helped to the stage, along with a walker, when Johnny took his guitar and stood to the mic with his magnificent rhinestone suit and hat, he came to life and put a show on that I will never forget. He was a true star, and although I am only 40 years old, I appreciated that whole experience more than I can say. The whole group signed autographs and posed for pictures after the show and I was first in line. Johnny and the rest were as friendly as they were legendary. Lord take good care of Johnny and Kitty as they were two of the best when we had the pleasure of having them with us.

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Johnnie. He was an icon. I too lost my husband in March 2011
country singer, songwriter Harley Allen. He had many hit songs and wrote them on a guitar that was once owned by Kitty and Johnny. it was a great 1952 D28. Johnny sold it to Curtis McPeak. Someone from Dayton Ohio bought the guitar from Curtis and Harley always loved it (He is Red Allen's Son).
Finally we got the guy to sell it to us. He loved that guitar and wrote most of his hits on it. After moving to Nashville, Curtis Verified that the guitar indeed was sold to him by Johnny. Harley fondly named the guitar "Kitty"

My condolences to you and your family. They say God heals what the mind cannot. God Bless Debbie Nims-Allen Brentwood Tn

Dear Kitty and family, I cannot express feelings at this time on your loss. I was in the audience in Cec 1988 when you all performed in Binghamton, NY. That was a very special day for me because I got to meet you all, and then after the show when I picked up my daughter she gave me the news that I was going to be a grandmother for the first time. That night was the highlight of the year for me. It was extra special because you didn't know it but I am a sister in Christ, a member of the Endwell, NY church of Christ. We have the assurance from Gods word that we will all meet in Heaven one day and then we can get to know you. In Christs name Love to you all.

Dear Kitty and Family
I want to send you my deepest sympathy on Johnnie's passing. I just found out this week when I was listening to Eddy Stubb's show, when he made a mention about his tribute to Johnnie. I remember listing to the farewell concert on WSM, and I recall the joke he told about mowing grass, and the woman stopped and ask how much do you charge and he said the woman I am mowing this for, let's me sleep with her. He was one of a kind and will be missed, I can just picture him and Jack Anglin singing together again in Heaven's Choir. In God's Love.

Dear Kitty and family:
I will never forget and always treasure seeing you, Bobby and Johnny when you came to the Midwest Country Theater in Sandstone, MN to perform during your farewell tour 11 years ago. I remember bringing a couple of booklets from Bear family boxed sets for you and Johnny to autograph, and Johnny must have said "bless your heart" about 3 or 4 times to me. It was a real pleasure seeing and talking to all of you and getting your autographs. You are truly wonderful people.
My thoughts and prayers go out to you. May God comfort you and your family forever and always.
October 04, 2011
Dear Miss Kitty and Family, may God comfort you during your loss of Mr. Johnny Wright and always. I am so sorry. Love to you today.

Dear Kitty, I first heard Johnnie & Jack in 1949, and loved all of their songs and all of yours too. I learned the Dobro because of them, still play it. Missed Jack in '63 and will miss Johnnie just as much. Bless you.

There will never be another Johnny Wright. I saw him and Kitty many times over the years and they were a class act. More importantly, county music moves along without one of the greats, however, Eddy Stubbs will remind us of the true icons in business..The rest of us will listen to his music over and over again. RIP Johnny...Great job.

I attended Church w/ the Wright Family @ Madison COC in 1960-61. My brother-in-law; Ray Kemo was a steel player who went on the road w/them as a bus-driver a few times after he left ET's group.. He said they were the best group he had ever travelled with and he had played with many country & western groups.
I saw Mrs. Kitty regularly for several years @ the grocery and she always took time for a short chat. The last time I saw their daughter Ruby was at the grocery. She was a lovely person also, whom we miss greatly.
There is no better family in the Madison neighborhood, IMO.
I wish to send love & Prayers to Mrs Kitty, Bobby, Sue & all the extended family, especially to GGranddaughter, Angelia-who is the only extended family member whom I know personally.
May God, in his infinite wisdom wrap you in his loving arms and help you through this time of grief.

Johnnie will be sorely missed by the entire country music community, and all those who knew & loved him.
The Wrights have one of Country Music's most revered families and we are all blessed to have had the privilege to have them in our midst.

in Christian Love,

It is indeed the end of an era. Time has come again to claim it's toll.

Mr. Wright will be remembered for his many talents and accomplishments but it is my hope that he will also be remembered for being married to the same dear lady for almost 74 years. That's something rare and in light of Mr. Wrights chosen profession, extraordinary to say the least. My condolences to Ms. Kitty Wells and the entire family.

I saw Johnny and Miss Kitty at Marion High School, in Marion, North Carolina in the early fifties. I was about twelve. I can still remember how pretty Miss Kitty was, and how much I enjoyed their show. Over the years I moved first to Virginia and the last forty-five years... I have lived in Los Angeles, California.
I also was a great fan of Bobby their son. The world has lost a great star and it seems to me a fan of many.
God Bless you all~

Miss Kitty, so, so sorry for your loss. I sit here daily in my sewing room listening to your angelic voice which takes me to the time when I was a very young girl. My mother sang along with you from the radio many, many years. I feel as though I am listening to "her" in the room. This is inspiring for me. I lost my mother 11 years ago; But, I feel her presence daily because of you. "Thank You, Mrs. Wright". aka Miss Kitty. <3 xxooo

To Miss Kitty and family
We have lost one more of our great county Music people. The Wright family and Jack Anglin gave so much to the music fleld. We saw Johnny and Jack and Miss Kitty many times. We always felt the show feeling that they gave us such a good show because they really did enjoy doing what they set out to do. I remember Johnny and Jack coming to a small town (my hometown) and playing on the patio every thursday and played their hearts out. This was in the fifties. The hit songs Ashes of Love and Poison Love were popular then. Thanks for giving so much to country music.
Kitty, we send our condolences to you and may God Bless you and your family.

Johnny and Kitty appeared in Brenham on the Bluebonnet Opry several years ago and not only has it been the most attended performance in the opry's history, it was also one of most entertaining. They were a devoted couple to each other and I think of that performance often---they truly supported and loved each other. I know she will miss him and has wonderful memories of their life together. Thank you Mr. Wright for being such a great performer as well as human being.
September 28, 2011

I had the honor of being on stage with Johnny and Kitty in the 1970's. My cousin (Chuck Bartlett) was their steel guitarist at the time and my band fronted their show at the Pequa Silver Mine Park in Pennsylvania. There are lots of singers but very few entertainers on stage today. Johnny, Kitty and their son Bobby knew how to put on a show. We lost Chuck in 1988 to cancer at the age of 46. My condolences to the family in this time of sorrow.

Since first hearing Johnny and Jack and Kitty in about 1952, they have been my favorite country singers. It is a shame that Johnny and Jack songs do not receive play time on country stations now. Occasionally one will play one of Kitty's songs ... which is a signal to me to turn the volume up immediately. I was privileged to meet Johnny at the museum several years ago and felt like he was a friend after that. Kitty, may God richly bless and comfort you and your family. James Adkins, Selmer, TN

Our thoughts and prayers goes out to Ms. Kitty and her family for the loss of Johnnie. I had the pleasure to meet Johnnie, Kitty and Bobbie at the Hannibal, New York field days back in the early 80's. I grew up on country music listening to both Johnnie and Kitty.

When I was about 6-7 years old, I remember seeing an album that my mother had of Kitty's and said mommy, "why is your picture on the cover?" My mom had a remarkable resemblance to Kitty. Forty years later, I still have a cd in my car and listen to her music all of the time.

God Bless
September 28, 2011
Johnnie&Jack imo played a big part of the golden age of country music when country music was cool! My high school football teammates and I sang " Poison Love" ever day after practice.
Condolence to Kitty Wells and the family. Johnnie&Jack are now singing in a heavenly band. " Pretty Little Miss Kitty Wells" the only queen of country music has a placed reserved in this bad.

Ms.Kitty and Family,
What a great loss the Country Music world has lost. When we were stationed at Patrick Air Force Base in Florida in the late 80's we had the opportunity to see Johnny and Kitty perform at the NCO club. We got to talk to them afterwards and they both were so down to earth people. They were big stars to us. Our prayers and condolences to the all the family and especially to you Kitty Wells. He is for sure singing in the heavenly choir and playing in the band on high. Take care Ms.Kitty we love you very much!!!

Miss Kitty, I am so sorry for your loss. You and Johnny were a wonderful and talented couple. I remember when you two came to Richmond, VA not too long ago - I think Big John Trimble had you on his show and we went to see and hear you - you were just as wonderful as ever. I grew up listening to you on radio. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

So sorry to hear of Johnny's passing. I was privileged to play drums with he and Kitty for a few years in the mid-seventies.A wonderful man and definitely worthy of legendary status in country music history. Some of the best players in Nashville were band members at one time or another. I remember Johnny telling me that Chet Atkins came to town to play fiddle with them before he became famous for his guitar playing. That's just one story. Johnny Wright saw all of country music happen.

Welcome Home
written by L J Coon

Welcome home my friend, from so much suffering
Welcome home my friend, step out of the pain
It’s ok to cry, we've all seen tears before
Its ok my friend welcome home

Talk of love one’s lost, so many years ago
And how you hurt inside, till no more tears would flow
Let the healing start, you can't look back no more
Its ok my friend welcome home

Welcome home, from so much suffering
Welcome home, step out of the pain
It’s ok to cry, we've all seen tears before
Its ok my friend, welcome home

Could I somehow sooth, your pain that lives within
If you just let go, the healing will begin
Holding on so tight, letting go is half the test
Its ok my friend welcome home

Welcome home, from so much suffering
Welcome home, step out of the pain
It’s ok to cry, we've all seen tears before
Its ok my friend, welcome home

It’s ok my friend…the pain won't hurt, no more ...
