Q Is my favorite member of The Grand Ole Opry, Hank Locklin, still active?
—Harold Shamblin, Shade, Ohio

Locklin recently released his 65th album, By the Grace of God, a collection of gospel songs, and was inducted into the Florida Artists Hall of Fame, taking a spot alongside past honorees Jimmy Buffett, Ray Charles and Ernest Hemingway. At 90, he's the oldest living member of the Grand Ole Opry, which he joined 47 years ago after his hit single "Please Help Me, I'm Falling," spent a remarkable 14 weeks at No. 1 on the charts.
