Unconfirmed reports claim his death had nothing to do with his liver packing up and leaving him 17 years ago.
My guess is that all those hard years he spent with the crazy succubus, Tammy Wynette (deceased), finally did him in:
The obvious drink for homage would be White Lightning, but I really don’t want any of my readers going blind.
