Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lawrence Hankins Locklin (February 15, 1918-March 8, 2009), better known as Hank Locklin, was an American country music singer-songwriter. A member of the Grand Ole Opry for nearly 50 years, Locklin had a long recording career with RCA Victor and scored big with the hits, "Please Help Me, I'm Falling," "Send Me the Pillow That You Dream On" and "Geisha Girl" from 1957-60. His singles charted from 1949-71. Born in McLellan in the Florida Panhandle, Locklin grew up working in the cotton fields to supplement his family's low income. He began playing the guitar at the age of nine during his recovery after being seriously injured when hit by a school bus. His first marriage to Willa Jean Murphy ended in divorce. In 1970 he married Anita Crooks of Brewton, Alabama. He had a son and four daughters, 12 grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren and a few close great nieces and nephews such as Sarah Locklin.show more
