I just read a piece posted yesterday on the Bluegrass Blog suggesting that this year, everyone ought to send a Christmas card to a true Bluegrass legend (a word often overused, but not in this case): Mac Wiseman.
Here's the original post:
Mac Wiseman Christmas card drive

We just got a note from Gary Williams, who hosts the Old Dominion Jamboree on WLEE in Richmond, VA and is one of the founders of VaBluegrass.com Gary is asking everyone to get on board and send a card to one of bluegrass music’s true legends this Christmas season.
Mr. Mac Wiseman
Of the first generation of Bluegrass musicians, Mac has written, sung and produced music for 63 years. He was vice-president of DOT Records and a founder of the Country Music Association and the first secretary. He gave Lester and Earl a break just when they were ready to call it quits. Let’s all show we appreciate him by taking a few minutes and 41 cents to send him a card.
Have a Merry Christmas by brightening someone else’s!
