LINK NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Jimmy Martin, a pioneering bluegrass singer and guitarist who performed with the Blue Grass Boys and many other musicians, died Saturday. He was 77. Martin died in a Nashville hospice, more than a year after he was diagnosed with bladder cancer, said his son, Lee Martin..... Jimmy Martin is definately my favorite bluegrass singer. Even if he was falling down drunk every time I saw him, he was rude, beligerant, arrogant, and real mean. But he was one of the best bluegrass singers EVER. His repitoire of songs included a whole lot of gospel, and I hope he was truly saved. RIP, to the King of Bluegrass.
