Country Music Legend and Sausage Maker Jimmy Dean Dies

Country music artist and famed sausage maker Jimmy Dean died at his home yesterday at that age of  81.

Sad news which at the same time makes me hungry for a breakfast sausage! Jimmy Dean sausage have always been, and will always be, the best!

RIP Jimmy Dean!

From CNN:

Dean, a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, was with his wife, Donna, at the time of his death, which appears to be from natural causes, said R.J. Clark of the Henrico County Police department.

Musically, Dean is best known for his song “Big Bad John,” which made it to No. 1 on both the country and pop charts in 1961 and was honored with a Grammy. His narrative style of song also produced hits like “Little Black Book” and “P.T. 109” — a song about John F. Kennedy’s command in the South Pacific during World War II.

    Growing-up with Jimmy Dean…. Remember it well— Part of the good old “Slow-n-Easy” times of TV and Country Music. Never liked his Sausage (too Strong and Salty), but he was a likeable Guy with a big friendly Smile (and Ears to match) who definitely made and left his Mark, which will live on as long as there are Grocery Stores and Breakfasts. RIP.
