NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Jack Greene, a longtime Grand Ole Opry star whose "There Goes My Everything" won single of the year by the Country Music Association in 1967, has died in Nashville at 83.

The song showed off his deep voice, made him a star and earned him the CMA's male vocalist of the year award in 1967.

Greene performed regularly on the Grand Ole Opry beginning that year.

His other hits, mostly in the late 1960s, included "All the Time," ''Are My Treasure," ''Until My Dreams Come True," ''What Locks the Door" and "Statue of a Fool."

Grand Ole Opry spokeswoman Jessie Schmidt said Friday that Greene died in his sleep Thursday night at home from complications of Alzheimer's disease. Funeral arrangements were incomplete.
