    Love the music of Johnny Horton, and have played the album my grandmother gave me for one of my birthdays when I was either eleven or twelve years old. Cried when he died, and still have his album. No record player to play it on, and in todays tough times not enough money to spend for any luxiouries. My retired husband went back to work to feed us. Wish I could buy his music here, but my sweet husband really, really gets upset if I spend money for extras, like music, etc. Maybe in a few months when I have earned a little of my own money. I am in a program for diabetes, which I have, and it takes me about 3 mths to earn fifty dollars. Then I can buy some of Johnny's music here that I can play, I hope. Have a CD player at least, from a few years ago. Johnny is my favorite singer of all time.
