So sad. Big Bad John singer and sausage man, Jimmy Dean, has died. He died last night in his home in Central Virginia at the age of 81. His wife, Donna, said, "I definitely need my privacy right now, and am not available for interviews. My husband died of natural causes, and funeral services are pending". Let's just hope country singers don't die in packs of 3 (or lately more like 15) like actors and other famous people do.
