Willie Nelson lost a friend[1] and his former guitarist, Jackie King, on January 24th. He died of a heart attack at the age of 71. The guy was legendary and it must have just broken Willie’s heart. The worst thing in this world is saying goodbye to someone you know and love. Death is harsh and I will say a prayer for Willie and his departed friend.

From Qpolitical:

Country music fans all over the world mourn as the world loses another artist.

On January 24th we said goodbye to an incredibly gifted musician in Willie Nelson’s former guitarist Jackie King.

King was 71 when he passed away after suffering a heart attack.

Nelson and King performed together for years and recorded several albums together. King appeared on Nelson’s The Gypsy, The Great Divide and Angel Eyes. In turn, Nelson made an appearance on King’s 1986 album Knight Bird. Willie Nelson: “I think of myself more now as a songwriter than I do a guitar player because of guys like Jackie King. It’s humbling to be in the presence of that kind of talent.” Both are legendary artists and King will be missed. Life goes on, but after a loss like this it is never the same.
