Country music’s Jack Greene dies in Nashville
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Jack Greene, a longtime Grand Ole Opry star who earned fame with the hit “There Goes My Everything,” has died in Nashville at 83.
The song showed off his deep voice, made him a star and earned him the single of the year and male vocalist of the year awards from the Country Music Association in 1967.
Grand Ole Opry spokeswoman Jessie Schmidt said Friday that Greene died in his sleep Thursday night at home from complications of Alzheimer’s disease.
Greene performed regularly on the Grand Ole Opry beginning in 1967.
