NPR News

Ray Price was a true pioneer of county music – the living link from Hank Williams to the country music of today who bridged Texas honky-tonk and country crooning and introduced the shuffle beat and walking bass line.

NPR produced some fine remembrances of Ray Price this week that are worth a listen.

On the evening of March 9th, 2012, Jerry Yarnell, master artist, whose television program Paint This with Jerry Yarnell is seen on PBS, was deputized in his Skiatook, Oklahoma studio as honorary Deputy Marshal of Dodge City, Kansas by Dodge City's Marshal Allen D. Bailey. In attendance were several of his staff, friends, students, his Mother Mary, and his Father Joe.
