Close your eyes. Lean back and relax. That warm, soothing, mellow voice that whisks you away to a happier time belongs to none other than the incomparable Jack Greene. As one of country music's most enduring and best-loved stars, Jack has thrilled millions over a career that has spanned over 4 decades. His unforgettable hits include Statue Of A Fool, There Goes My Everything, and All The Time, all of which have been immortalized by enthusiastic fans who demand to hear them wherever he plays. Having toured as a drummer in the Texas Troubadour band for the legendary Ernest Tubb, Jack could scarcely have imagined the incredible success he was to achieve as a solo performer. However, Tubb could see the dynamic potential in his protege, and actively encouraged him to strike out on his own. ~ JackGreeneOpry.com: Jack Greene ~ retrieved July 6, 2013 © JackGreeneOpry.com

Jack Greene ~ Welcomed as a 1967 Opry member ~ At the close of the 1960s, Jack Greene was as luminous a country star as any in the world. In just three years, he scored nine Top 5 country hits, including five No. 1s. The first of these, There Goes My Everything, topped the country charts for nearly two months in 1967, prompting Jack to give up his job as Ernest Tubb's drummer in favor of a solo career. “Ernest told me ‘Son, I believe it’s time to go,’” Jack remembers today. “But he also said, ‘If you can’t make it, you can always come back and be a Troubadour.’” ~ 1967 © Opry
