Upon hearing about the passing of Hazel Smith, Ricky Skaggs said, “Hazel Smith was one great lady. She knew nearly everyone in Nashville. She loved musicians and songwriters. If she was in a room with people, she’d be holding court and giving her 10 cents worth. She was a great blessing to me and Sharon back when she was our personal assistant. She worked from our house and did lots of correspondence to the fans, answered phone calls, and represented me and Sharon with her sweet southern drawl and mother’s charm. All you had to say is Miss Hazel to anyone in Nashville, and they all knew who you were talking about. She will be missed, but she won’t be missing us!!”
Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends during this time.
