Happy 80th, Lily Weatherford!

When I interviewed Weatherfords baritone Cody Boyer a few weeks ago, he mentioned that Lily Fern Weatherford would be having her 80th birthday on the 25th. (I confirmed the date in the Singing News Sourcebook). That’s today.

While I’m hesitant to post her email address here, it is on the Weatherfords’ website’s contact page.

Why don’t we do a little more than just paying lip service to appreciating our legends while they’re still with us? Let’s send her emails today thanking her for her years of faithfulness to spreading the Gospel.
