Country music star Johnnie Wright died at the age of 97 on September 27, 2011, in his home in Madison, Tennessee. White was married to female country superstar Kitty Wells for nearly 74. Wright was one half of the famed Johnnie & Jack duo, the other being Jack Anglin, who died in 1963. They had such hits as "(I Get So Lonely) Oh Baby Mine," "Poison Love" or "Goodnight Sweetheart." After Anglin's early death, Wright continued his solo career and had a number one hit with "Hello Vietnam" in 1965. He kept on performing with his wife until 2000.
