Petula Clark (89)
Gayla Peevey (79)
Chad Morgan (89)

For those wondering who Chad is, you'll perhaps recognise this song.
He actually performed a couple month back at a pub not far from me, and he's still drawing in the fans.

Larry Collins of the 1950's country/rockabilly act The Collins Kids is still around. His sister Lorrie was the other Collins Kid, but she passed away in 2018.
