Now here is a great piece of country music history and memorbilia! Ernest Tubb wrote a personal message to Roy Acuff and the Smoky Mountain Boys on this sound folio. From one music legend to another! Found in the collection of @thebluegrassbusmuseum. #ErnestTubb#RoyAcuff#SmokyMountainBoys#TravelingTroubadour

My Dad was called home on the 5th of July. He led a life that many would be interested to hear about. From being a pit boss in Nevada during the old school ways to opening & running what was probably the first Indian Gaming casino long before it was considered legal... 😎 He sat with many Classic Country icons & enjoyed songwriting too. He was a man that believed family came first & that no bet was a good bet until it won. He taught me what a trifecta was and how to play by the time I was 5 😆 How many Dads take their kids to the track and give them $50 to bet?? Win place or show!! I’m sure there’s so much more that we will never know (probably for the best) Is all he asked was to Kindly Keep It Country, be loyal, put ice in his milk, & to not wear pig tails Yet, he gave so much more back to those he loved and cared for. Not sure how he would feel about this picture & the added wings... I’d have to think he’d laugh and be thankful his OGs don’t do social media. #Dad#vietnamvet#keepitcountry#tearinmybeer#daddyshands#hankwilliams#georgejones#lorrettalynn#patsycline#ernesttubb#tomthall#merelhaggard#johnnycash#dontmakethemliketheyusedto#fuckcancer
It was on this day, in 1963, that Ernest Tubb recorded “Thanks A Lot” at Columbia Studios in Nashville, TN (thanks to @finneganbellmusic for alerting us to this fact). We’re pretty thankful to have played “Thanks A Lot” every night at closing time for 2,388 nights (thanks to @big_heavy for that). And while we’re at it, big ‘ol thanks to everyone in general for being so damn cool this summer. Thanks y’all, thanks a lot!! #thanksalot#ernesttubb#chs
