Country music's Jack Greene dies in Nashville


Jack Greene, a longtime Grand Ole Opry star whose song "There Goes My Everything" won single of the year from the Country Music Association in 1967, has died. He was 83.

The song showed off his deep voice, made him a star and earned him the CMA's male vocalist of the year award in 1967.

Greene performed regularly on the Grand Ole Opry beginning that year.

His other hits, most recorded in the late 1960s, included "All the Time," `'Are My Treasure," `'Until My Dreams Come True," `'What Locks the Door" and "Statue of a Fool."

Grand Ole Opry spokeswoman Jessie Schmidt said Friday that Greene died in his sleep Thursday night at his Nashville home from complications of Alzheimer's disease. Funeral arrangements were incomplete.
