Awesome Possum Fact of the Week
"Howdeee! I'm just so proud to be here!" Sarah Ophelia Colley Cannon was born in Centerville, Tennessee in 1912. Through her persona as Minnie Pearl, she spends 50 years on the Grand Ole Opry and becomes a regular on "Hee Haw," joining the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1975.  If you go to the Country Music Hall of Fame and view her plaque in the rotundra, you will notice something unique.  Even though Sarah passed away in 1996, she wished that no date of death would be placed on Minnie Pearl as her spirit would live on forever.
