Goodbye Smoky Dawson

How sad it was today to hear the news that Smoky Dawson had died. He has been such an icon in the Country Music industry. He had a rough start to life, with his Mum dying of a Mystery illness and his brother Les, drowned in the Yarra River. He ran away from home at age 10 and the rest as they say, is history! You can read some more about him here.
At 93 yrs of age, he had a good innings.
We haven't seen him in Tamworth for a few years now, but he was always there. He was always in the Parade down the main street, on the Saturday morning.

I didn't know he grew up in Warnambool, Vic. Warnambool was about an hr away from where I was born, in Portland, Vic. Find out something new every day!

RIP Smoky...1914-2008

Chat soon,
Chelle Xx
