Skip Jackson of Hendersonville Tennessee passed yesterday (June 26th). Skip played for Faron Young, The Kendals, and others. He was a fine player, though pretty much retired from music for several decades. Arrangements are pending.

I'm sorry to read of Skip's passing. He was a great guy and player. We did many package shows with The Kendalls back in the late 70s - early 80s and I always looked forward to visiting with and listening to Skip playing his Blanton.

My deepest sympathies and prayers go out for Skip, his family and friends.

In Tulsa several years ago while with Faron Young's Band, Skip came out to a club I was working in and jammed several hours with us before heading on to their next show. He would show you anything at the drop of a hat, a real gentlemen for sure.

Sorry to hear of his passing. I first met Skip when he lived in Burleson,TX He was a great player and as he went on to other jobs he just got better. RIP Brother
