Such a great sorrow to read of The Great Tompall's passing, I have been a fan for over 30 years. I still remember my sister and I fighting over one of his albums at a record store- it was the only copy available that day, happy to say I won the record! and still proudly own it. Tompall and the Glaser Brother's will always be my favorite country group.

The very best singer of country music will be missed. I am thankful for the music and the memories of the times I got to see Tom and his brothers in person. May God bless the family in their grief. He will live on in our hearts.
