Country Singer. He was one of the most popular Honky-tonk stars in country music and had more singles on the Billboard charts then any of his contemporaries in the 1950s. His biggest hit "There Stands the Glass" (1953), is regarded as one of country's classic drinking songs. For Decca Records, he charted 48 singles, 39 reaching the top ten to include "In the Jailhouse Now", " More and More", "Backstreet Affair", "Why, Baby, Why", "Oh, So Many Years" and "Finally". He was a regular performer at the Grand Ole Opry, on the tour circuits and continued charting hits until retiring in 1982. In 2001, he was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and inducted in the Country Music Hall of Fame.

The world lost a Star but heaven gained a new one.

"The Wondering Boy"

Webb's first big hit, but no one in the world of music will ever be left wondering about the lasting, international impact Webb had on Country Music ... the business he gave most of his life to.

This kind, gentle man will be missed by his family, his friends, and his fans.

Webb's philosophy in life "You must forgive others for He forgave you."

We love you and miss you, Papa.
