In 1991, the world mourned for the loss of one of the greatest stars during the country music’s honky-tonk heyday – and that’s no other than the flamboyant singer, Webb Pierce

Pierce died on February 24, 1991, at his home in Nashville at the age of 65. The music legend had a long battle with pancreatic cancer and had been going back and forth from the hospital for nearly a year before his death. A part of his colon was removed in 1984, and he went through open-heart surgery three years later.
