The Stanley BrothersDixie Hall of Good Home Grown Music writes, "Successful Stanley Brothers commemoration response has encouraged us to extend our reminiscences of everything Stanley beyond the anniversary of Carter's passing, December 1, 1966. View Jack Cooke performance here, our beloved "Cookie", who also passed on December 1, 2009."

She continues, "Seems like, as this is the Stanley year, let's take it on out with a heap of spins of Keith Whitley, Charlie Sizemore, Ralph II, James Alan Shelton, Roy Lee Centers, Ricky Skaggs, Melvin Goins, Larry Sparks, George Shuffler and John Rigsby. (Also such as Ralph & Tom T. - The Water Lily on Saturday Night/Sunday Morning, Col. Isaac Moore, Junior Sisk & Joe Mullins, Don Rigsby - Doctor's Orders: A Tribute To Ralph Stanley, The Spinney Brothers - I Wish That I Could've Met Carter, just to name a few. :-) )"
