"Who's Gonna Fill Their Shoes" as written by Norris D Wilson and Danny Walls....
You know this old world is full of singers
But just a few are chosen
To tear your heart out when they sing
Imagine life without them
All your radio heroes
Like the outlaw that walks through Jesse's dream

No, there will never be another
Red-Headed Stranger
A Man in Black and Folsom Prison Blues
The Okie from Muskogee
Or Hello Darling
Lord, I wonder, who's gonna fill their shoes?

Who's gonna fill their shoes?
Who's gonna stand that tall?
Who's gonna play the Opry
And the Wabash Cannonball?
Who's gonna give their heart and soul
To get to me and you?
Lord I wonder, who's gonna fill their shoes?

God bless the boys from Memphis
Blue Suede Shoes and Elvis
Much too soon he left this world in tears
They tore up the Fifties
Old Jerry Lee and Charlie
And Go Cat Go still echoes through the years

You know the heart of country music
Still beats in Luke the Drifter
You can tell when he sang "I Saw the Light"
Old Marty, Hank and Lefty
Why I can feel 'em right here with me
On this Silver Eagle rolling through the night

Who's gonna fill their shoes?
Who's gonna stand that tall?
Who's gonna play the Opry
And the Wabash Cannonball?
Who's gonna give their heart and soul
To get to me and you?
Lord I wonder, who's gonna fill their shoes?

Yes I wonder, who's gonna fill their shoes?

    General Commentgreat song.......I seen him perform this song last night and he has a video montage to all his friends who have passed on like Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Tammy Wynette, etc and he sings it with such heart. Really awesome!
