In 1965, Buck Owens held his first of several annual Toys for Tots Charitable Christmas Shows at the Bakersfield Civic Auditorium. The price of admission was one unwrapped Christmas gift.One of the many headliners was Ferlin. Simply put. he held the audience and the other entertainers in the palm of his hand for his 30 minute segment and received a 2 minute standing ovation from the standing room only crowd of around 3,000. I always thought his ballads were his best work. My favorite is "Even If It's True". There aren't any more Ferlin Husky's or Johnny Cash's out there and never will be. RIP !!

I'm headed real quick too 66. I grew up listening to Ferlin and thought he was the greatest thing since sliced bread.
Simon Crum fascinated me and I grew up doing the impersonation of him. Always wished I could have done it for Ferlin. Great man, great entertainer. I know Ferlin is a "headliner" in Heaven.

Grew up in California listing to Ferlin Husky, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams Sr. One of my favorite songs is On The Wings Of A Snow White Dove. It brings a smile every time I hear it.

I just saw on RFD-TV a Ralph Emery's Memories featuring Ferlin Husky - loved it! I have always enjoyed Mr. Husky's singing and sense of humor, and felt in my heart he was a good man. It certainly came through on this program - he is very much missed. We need more men of his caliber in today's world.
