The two men became friends; and when the Anglin Brothers disbanded in 1939, Anglin joined Wright as Johnnie Wright And The Happy Roving Cowboys with Jack Anglin. In 1940, they became Johnnie & Jack, who enjoyed success as a vocal duo until Anglin's death in 1963. The duo became members of the Grand Ole Opry in the 1940s.[1] Driving alone to attend a memorial service for Patsy Cline not far from his home, he rounded a bend in Madison, Tennessee at a high speed and died in the ensuing crash.
