1992: Singer-songwriter and fiddler Roy Acuff, one of the most influential stars in country music history, dies of congestive heart failure at age 89 in Nashville, Tennessee. Acuff began his music career in the 1930s and gained fame as the singer and fiddler for his group, the Smoky Mountain Boys. He joined the Grand Ole Opry in 1938 and co-founded Acuff-Rose Music, the first major Nashville-based country music publishing company, in 1942.
