Subject:  Jim Hurt passes away
Message:  For those of you that knew Jim you also know about his friendship with Mickey. Jim passed away Sunday at his home from liver cancer. Jim wrote Alabama hit "Love in the First Degree" Peter Cooper of the Tennessean writes "With help from songwriting luminary Mickey Newbury, Mr. Hurt eventually channeled his passions away from the streets and onto music stages."

Jim was a good guy, I will miss him as will everyone that knew him.
RIP Pal.
