This rare photo of Mary with Roy Acuff was taken in October 1964 after Jim swept the Country Music Association Awards ceremony. Jim received the Best Male Vocalist, Best Single and Best Album awards that year, and a gracious but shy Mary uttered only a soft "thank you" each time she was called to the podium. The event was nationally televised . She talked about her feelings later in a letter which will be reproduced in the upcoming book on Jim.
