He told Judge Frank Clement that he was sure his aunt wanted to sell the estate to Gregory. Of course, he said this at the time Ed was currying favor with the good Reverend by booking this supposed man of the cloth to sing at his carnivals. Ed bought him a tuxedo and cowboy boots and Super Bowl tickets and took him to the White House. White was SUPPOSED to remain an impartial observer, and not allow himself to be suckered by Ed Gregory.
What I'm saying is that Bill White was a major contributing factor to the destruction of the Jim Reeves legacy. If he is the man who appeared on WSM with a tribute, that is egregious and deeply offensive to everyone who knows the truth. And WSM should be informed of this.
That station has gone down hill so badly in recent years anyway, and the days of it carrying the Opry are numbered. It is destined drop the Opry sooner than later. My prediction, based on inside knowledge of the station's management and financial standing.
