Country singer Ferlin Husky hospitalized

20 April 2009
Country singer Ferlin Husky (also known under various names, including Terry Preston and Simon Crum) has been hospitalized in a Springfield hospital with congestive heart failure and pneumonia last Friday. Now he is in stable condition.

In 1955, Husky had a solo hit with "I Feel Better All Over (More Than Anywhere's Else)"/"Little Tom", and developed Simon Crum as a comic alter ego. As Crum, Husky signed a separate contract with Capitol Records and began releasing records, the biggest of which was 1959's "Country Music is Here to Stay".

In the late 1950s, Husky had a long string of hits, including the #1 "Gone,"; he also was acting, appearing on the Kraft TV Theatre program, and in the film Mr. Rock & Roll.
