Unfortunately, we knew it was coming but that doesn't make it much easier to accept. As I was saying in a post a few weeks back, as sad as it is not to have Porter Wagoner around anymore, it was at least nice to have him around so he could have a last hurray. In a recent interview, he said that he was gratified that he had young fans come out to see him at the shows on his last tour. Not did he finally get to play in New York again but he also opened for the White Stripes at Madison Square Garden, where he received a warm reception as part of that tour. That's a great way to go out. There's a nice obituary in the Tennessean to see also.
