Roughshod Records News Post New Entry

Virgie Warren * Rest In Peace * 14 October 2015

Posted by [email protected] on October 18, 2015 at 2:05 PM

Hello Folks,

It is with great sadness that I inform you that Traditional Country Music singer-songwriter, and very dear friend, Virgie Warren, passed away on Wednesday 14 October 2015 due to cancer complications.

Virgie had been a foundation for traditional country music in Michigan for over 4 decades. She met and knew numerous country stars, big and small, and received numerous awards and recognitions for helping scores of independent country music up-and-comers, personally and through her "Bluebird Country News."

I for one am deeply indebted to her for the additional exposure her magazine gave me and through Ralph Compton's "Hard Country Beat" magazine, for whom she also wrote. In 2003 my trucking career was ended by the collapse of three neck vertebrae on my spinal cord. Virgie and her best friend, Betty J. Paulette, also a very dear friend, were two of many selfless friends who came to my aide during my recovery period, you can't ask for better than that.

I was informed of this loss an hour ago via a phone conversation with Betty J. Paulette, who is currently in Glacier Hill Care & Rehabilitation Center in Ann Arbor, Michigan, recovering from a heart attack.

Mike Johnson, Roughshod Records
