One of America’s greatest country music legends, Dallas Frazier has passed away.

He died in his home on Friday, January 14, 2022, at the age of 82.

The multi-Grammy winner who is enshrined in the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame built a career on his notable songwriting ability, creating hits like Hollywood Argyles’ 1960 hit “Alley Oop”, The Oak Ridge Boys‘ 1981 classic “Elvira,” and the 1971’s Jack Greene-recorded “There Goes My Everything.”

Reacting to his death, Kyle Young, CEO of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum told Billboard: “Dallas Frazier is among the greatest country songwriters of all time.”

He added: “He [Dallas Frazier] could convey infectious fun with ‘Elvira,’ and then write something as stunningly sad and true as ‘Beneath Still Waters.

“His songs helped Connie Smith to become a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame. He was a man of kindness, generosity, and faith, who overcame a hardscrabble upbringing to offer smiling gifts to all of us. He lived a beautiful life of a beautiful mind.”
