On a related note, earlier this month saw the passing of longtime “Larry’s Country Diner” regular Sheriff Jimmy Capps at the age of 81. In addition to being a “Diner mainstay,” Capps was also a member of the Grand Ole Opry’s house band for more than 50 years, and performed on several hits by Johnny Cash, George Strait and Kenny Rogers.
He became a regular on “Larry’s Country Diner” in 2009.
In 2012, Capps was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. In 2018, the rehearsal room at the Grand Ole Opry was named after him.
