Country artist Stonewall Jackson, known for his time on the Grand Ole Opry stage for more than five decades, died on Saturday after a lengthy battle with vascular dementia at age 89.
Jackson, a guitarist, performed on the Opry beginning on Nov. 3 1956 and was still appearing on the show in 2010. As a result, Fox17 in Nashville notes that the"Waterloo" is the longest current Opry member. Saturday night's performance of the Opry was dedicated in his honor. His real name was Stonewall, after Confederate Gen. Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson.
"Waterloo" was a hit on the country and pop charts in 1959. His other hits, mostly in the 1960s, included "Don’t Be Angry," "B.J. the D.J," "Why I’m Walkin’," "A Wound Time Can’t Erase" and "I Washed My Hands in Muddy Water."
