Classic country. . .funeral music

Bob Wills' classic performed by Asleep at the Wheel!

Dr. Steve Tucker, my buddy from Tulane graduate school days and a leading expert on the history and sociology of American country music, always told me to "Play this one at my funeral!"

Not sure what he meant. Maybe its the "wailsome" tone!

I came across this and I was wondering if you were talking about Dr. Stephen Tucker who went to Tulane and Baylor. If so he is my American History teacher at Brother Martin High School in New Orleans. He is offering us extra credit if we can find any of his published works, interviews, etc. if applicable I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction?
