Ned Miller, probably best known as the writer and original performer of "From A Jack To A King", has died at the age of 90. Interesting article about him here: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/04/arts/ ... ebook&_r=0

Interesting./
I loved that track "From a jack To a king" & the fresh clear sound it has since I was a kid.
The article mentions a cover by Elvis. Now, I like most of Elvis'' country covers, but just the other night I was by chance listening to Elvis' version & I thought it was awful.
in the case of this song, Ned wins over Elvis!
