UPI News Service, 05/22/2006 

Grand Ole Opry legend Billy Walker, his wife and two band members were killed when their van rolled off a highway just south of Montgomery, Ala.

In addition to the 77-year-old singer of "Charlie's Shoes" and "Cross the Brazos at Waco," killed in the Sunday accident were Betty Walker, 61; Charles Lilly Jr. 44; and Daniel Patton Sr., 40, the Montgomery (Ala.) Advertiser reported Monday. The Walkers and Lilly lived in Hendersonville, Tenn., while Patton was from Hermitage, Tenn.

Walker's grandson, Joshua Brooks, 21, of Hendersonville, Tenn., was hospitalized in critical condition.

The group was returning to Nashville from a performance in Foley, Ala., when the accident occurred.

Walker, who shared the stage with Elvis Presley, joined the Grand Ole Opry in 1960. Early on, he was known as the "Traveling Texan, the Masked Singer of Country Songs."
