Happy Birthday to Ben Dorcy, and many happy returns of the day.
Mark Hughes, of the Willie Nelson & Friends Museum and General Store in Nashville, sent these.
“These images were taken during the “Ben Dorcy Day” on March 10, 1999. Waylon and several other artists turned out to proclaim Ben “a great among greats”.
The event was organized by Darrell & Mona McCall along with Frank & Jeanie Oakley. David McCormick of Ernest Tubb Record Shop hosted the event at the Troubadour Theater which is located just behind the Willie Nelson Museum.
