John Gerome (AP writer and national “country music correspondent”) has a piece in Monday’s edition of The Tennessean covering the funeral services for Louise Scruggs yesterday at The Ryman Auditorium. As Gerome notes in his opening sentence:

“Louise Scruggs, whose business savvy helped banjo great Earl Scruggs’ career flourish, was remembered Monday in a memorial service at the auditorium where they first met.”
