Jack Greene was, at one time, another time, a pretty popular Country Western entertainer.

I forget who said it but Pearl Butler was once described as someone who looks like the head matron in a woman's prison.

And Timmy is right--Greene (aka "The Jolly Greene Giant") was extremely popular in his day. About the only hit of his played (if at all) nowadays is There Goes My Everything but he also took songs like All the Time, Statue of a Fool and You Are My Treasure to the top of the country music charts.

Jack Greene was the drummer in Ernest Tubb's Texas Toubadours before striking gold with a solo career. GREAT voice.
