Dolly Parton Says Goodbye to ‘Mr. Everything’ – Porter Wagoner

We are praying and sharing our condolences, after famous country legend Dolly Parton said goodbye to her former manager and close friend Don Warden. He was 87 years old.

Dolly Parton tweeted the sad announcement, and made her fans cry with this tragic message: “A huge piece of my life is gone. Rest in peace Don and know for sure that I will always love you.”

Please pray:

Parton shared more details about the loss of her dear friend:

“I’ve known and loved Don Warden since I joined The Porter Wagoner Show in 1967. He was like a father, a brother, a partner and one of my best friends. I feel like a piece of my heart is missing today. Certainly a huge piece of my life is gone. Rest in peace Don and know for sure that I will always love you.”

And as Parton shared in her 1994 auto-biography:

“Anybody who knows him – and he knows everybody – looks up to him. At one time there was even a T-shirt being sold around Nashville that read ‘I KNOW DON WARDEN.’ People are still calling me and asking, ‘How can I get one of those Don Warden T-shirts?’ Sometimes it feels like people are only using me to get to Don.”

Don was part of the Porter’s trio, then joined the Opry with the country legend before starting The Porter Wagoner Show in 1954. Afterward, he became her manager. He was also famous for playing the steel guitar with other famous acts on the Louisiana Hayride TV show.

Let us pray for Dolly Parton and the Warden family during this difficult time. Rest in peace.
