Grand Ole Opry legend Jack Greene, who died this past March 14, will be remembered at a special memorial service, "A Celebration of Life and Love," at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Wednesday, March 27, at 11 a.m. 
 
The service will be open to the public.
 
Vince Gill, Lorrie Morgan, Gene Watson, Ricky Skaggs and others will pay musical tribute to Jack, a member of the Grand Ole Opry since 1967. Jeannie Seely, who recorded several hit duets with Jack, will be among those delivering a eulogy. 
 
Jack was part of country music history when he became the first winner of the Country Music Association award for Male Vocalist of the Year in 1967. His signature hit, "There Goes My Everything," was also named Single of the Year, while the album of the same name took home the Album of the Year honor. Jack's other No. 1 singles included "All the Time" and "Statue of a Fool."
