Country music singer-songwriter and guitar player Claude King passed away today at the age of 90. He had just celebrated his 67th wedding anniversary last month.

A native of Louisiana, King was best known for his 1962 hit “Wolverton Mountain” which became popular on both the country and rock n’ roll charts. Co-written with Merle Kilgore, the song was about Kilgore’s uncle, Clifton Clowers who was lifelong resident of Woolverton Mountain in Arkansas. And I mean lifelong. Clowers lived until he was 102. Let’s just say Clowers didn’t think any man was good enough for his daughters.
