Photo Wednesday

Cowboy Copas.  
Died in the 1963 plane crash that also killed Patsy Cline and Hawkshaw Hawkins.

Cowboy Copas (c) and George Morgan (r)

I don't know when these photographs were taken, but in 1955, CC, GM, and June Carter appeared together in several shows.   I found these photographs near Bristol, TN, not too far from the Carter Fold.

(Collection JJ & Mary Cromer)


  1. Wow, what a find JJ! Do you search thrift and consignment shops for these? I actually lived in Winchester, VA for a couple of years, not far from where Patsy Cline's home, not far from a Patsy-themed MacDonalds, not far from the original and first Harley Davidson shop.

  2. We hunt around whenever we can, always fun. A Patsy-themed mcD? wowsa . . . Did you ever meet Joe Bageant? I can imagine he might have had a quarter pounder or two in his day. I'm a big fan of his work, Deer Hunting with Jesus: Dispatches from America's Class War . . . great book . . .
