1984: Singer-songwriter Ernest Tubb, one of the pioneers of country music, dies of emphysema at age 70 in Nashville, Tenn. Among Tubb's biggest hits were "Walking the Floor Over You," "Waltz Across Texas," "Soldier's Last Letter," "It's Been So Long Darling" and "Sweet Thang," the last a 1967 duet with an up-and-coming Loretta Lynn.
