Frankie Picasso had the best time on FrankieSense today, interviewing Catherine Powers, former manager and widow of the late great Country Jazz performer, Freddy Powers.
Catherine and Freddy Powers were married for over 25 years. Wrong.. This was real life and Freddy Powers was a prolific performer and songwriter, most celebrated for co-writing numerous # 1 hits for Merle Haggard, notably including such fan fav’s as “Let’s Chase Each Other Around the Room Tonight,” “I Always Get Lucky With You,” “Natural High,” and “A Place to Fall Apart” among countless others. Freddy is the recipient of Lifetime Achievement Awards by the Nashville Songwriter’s Association International, the Texas Music Academy, and the Texas Guitar Association, the CMA Triple Play Award, and the BMI # 1 Song Award among other coveted distinctions and honors.
When Freddy was diagnosed with Parkinsons, Catherine was by his side nursing him the whole time.  Guest Star, Voice finalist and Freddy Powers Protege, Mary Sarah surprised Catherine during the show. The Spree of 83 is a book written about the roller coaster career and life of Freddy Powers
