ABOUT

Ferlin Eugene Husky (December 3, 1925 — March 17, 2011) was an early American country music singer who was equally adept at the genres of traditional honky-tonk, ballads, spoken recitations, and rockabilly pop tunes. He had two dozen top-20 hits in the Billboard country charts between 1953 and 1975; his versatility and matinee-idol looks propelled a seven-decade entertainment career. In the 1950s and 1960s, Husky's hits included "Gone" and "Wings of a Dove", each reaching number one on the country charts. He also created a comic outspoken hayseed character, Simon Crum; and recorded under the stage name Terry Preston from 1948-53. In 2010, Husky was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Ferlin bought his son, Danny, a sports car for his 16th birthday. His son was killed in a car accident that very evening when he took his new car out to drive.
