Song Of The Day – “In The Jailhouse Now” by Jimmie Rodgers

If there was a Mt. Rushmore for Country Music, Jimmie Rodgers’ would be right next to Hank Williams, Patsy Cline and Johnny Cash. Although his life was cut short by tuberculosis a scant 6 years after it started, Country music begins and ends with “The Singing Brakeman.” He was also the first artist to be inducted into the Country Music Hall Of Fame.
