Jack Greene: Statue of a Fool

Jack Greene singing his 1968 No.1 hit Statue of a Fool in a 2008 country music reunion.

Greene went from being a member of the Peach Tree Boys to being a member of the Ernest Tubb’s band the Texas Troubadors.

He claims on the above video that he had nine No.1 hits but his discography shows only five No.1’s.

Jack Greene singing Don’t You Ever Get Tired of Hurting Me. He made the mistake of recording this song the same time as Ray Price but he still does a great job on it and Ronnie Milsap also recorded it and took it to No.1 on the Billboard Country Music chart in 1968.

Greene is not a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame probably due to him having his No.1 songs in a four year period from 1966-1969 and only having one more Top 10 hit the rest of his career.
