Subscribe To:

Country music legend Tammy Wynette's husband, GEORGE RICHEY, has been buried near his wife after urging friends and family to keep his death from the media.
Richey, who managed Wynette throughout the 1980s and co-wrote her hits Til I Can Make it on My Own and You & Me, died on 31 July (10), according to reports. He was 74.
He had requested there be no public memorial service or an announcement of his death, but Nashville newspaper The Tennessean unearthed details of his burial on Monday (16Aug10).
Richey also co-wrote songs for George Jones and worked as a producer.
One of his final achievements before he passed was helping to create the Tammy Wynette: First Lady of Country Music exhibition at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville, Tennessee. The tribute show opens on Friday (20Aug10).
Details of Richey's death remain a mystery, but CMT.com reports he had been ill for some time.
