7 Oct. Remembering the great Rex Griffin (12 Aug 1912-7 Oct 1958), one of the most talented singer/songwriter/guitarists of his era and a fine yodeller. Several of his compositions became country standards including Just Call Me Lonesome (Jim Reeves, Ernest Tubb,Elvis Presley), Everybody’s Tryin’ To Be My Baby (Carl Perkins and The Beatles) and The Last Letter, recorded by everyone from Jimmie Davis to Willie Nelson. Ernest Tubb wrote “In my opinion his singing was second only to Jimmie Rodgers” – we agree!
