Musician and Actor. He was an active member of Grand Ole Opry, he began his music career in the 1940s in Dallas Texas as a singer and guitarist with Bill Boyd's Cowboy Ramblers. After his stint in the United States Army he formed the Texas Ramblers, performing around Corpus Christi area in Texas, and working as a radio DJ. He was inducted into the DJ hall of fame in 1981. During the production of "Sweet Dreams," the Patsy Cline bio film, he was given the chance at acting by portraying country singer Cowboy Copas. He was a member of the Hendersonville Masonic Lodge, a 33rd degree Scottish Rite mason, and a member of the Al Menah Shriners. His love for helping those in need along with his affiliation with the Shriner Hospitals for Crippled Children allowed him the ability to develop the "Charlie Walker Golf Invitational" in which all proceeds are donated to the hospitals to help children and families in need, and is still held each year. He is survived by his Wife Connie, their ten children, and twenty grandchildren. Cause of Death: Colon Cancer (bio by: Chris Cotton)
