I remember hearing "He Stopped Loving Her Today" on the radio all the time when I was younger. A great song.

Back during my decades as a professional musician, circa 1981 or so, I sat in on piano behind Curly at a club in Nashville while he sang THE GREEN GREEN GRASS OF HOME. I was positively thrilled.
