    NEW ORLEANS - Country singer-songwriter Claude King, an original member of the Louisiana Hayride who was best known for the 1962 hit "Wolverton Mountain," has died. He was 90.
    King had just celebrated his birthday and 67th wedding anniversary to his wife, Barbara, last month. The couple's eldest son, Duane King, said his father was found unresponsive in his bed early Thursday morning at his home in Shreveport.
    King was one of the original members of the Louisiana Hayride, the Saturday night show where Elvis Presley and Hank Williams Sr. got their start. The show transformed country and western music from 1948 to 1960 with music genres including hillbilly, western swing, jazz, blues and gospel.

    Rest in peace, Sir. Deepest sympathy to your family and all who love you.
    I've been Frosted (thanks, Elyse and Karen!).

    I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
    Death thought about it.
    "Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."
