Eddie Burns Obituary, Death – Eddie Burns, also known as Country Boy Eddie, passed away this morning at the age of 92. He was known by both of those nicknames. Both of those names were commonly used to refer to him. He was the host of one of the live shows that had the longest run time in the history of television (37 years, beginning in 1957 and ending in 1994), and during that time he had the opportunity to speak with a wide range of famous people, such as Dolly Parton, Eddy Arnold, Marilyn Monroe, Jayne Mansfield, Steve Allen, Chet Atkins, Pat Boone, and Roger Miller. During those 37 years, the show he hosted had the longest run time in the history of television.
His program held the record for the longest run time of any show in the annals of television. Tammy Wynette, a musician who was born and reared in Birmingham, Alabama, had her introduction to the world of music on the Country Boy Eddie Show when she first started out in the business. His show was replayed all throughout the South, and he had a significant impact on the programming that is shown on the local television station in this city, which is also referred to as the Magic City. His show was broadcasted in a variety of different locations. I am unable to state this with absolute certainty, but I have a peculiar suspicion that he is the one to blame for Mickey Ferguson’s childish behavior.
*[In point of fact, young Tammy performed on the Country Boy Eddie Show from 6 to 8 AM prior to attending cosmetology school; her uncle worked at WBRC and got an audition with Mr. Burns for her on his behalf.] *[In point of fact, young Tammy performed on the Country Boy Eddie Show from 6 to 8 AM prior to attending cosmetology school.] Immediately following the conclusion of her studies in cosmetology, she sought employment at Midfield Beauty Salon and began performing her duties there. Even though she was living in the Ham at the time with her maternal grandparents, she was still legally married to her husband. Even though the two of them had been living apart for some time, this did not affect their marital status. She relocated to Birmingham, Alabama, after finalizing her divorce from her previous spouse and taking custody of her children.
