His newest album, Bad Mouthin’, was released in September 2018. His breakthrough hit was “Polk Salad Annie” in 1967 and the classic “A Rainy Night in Georgia” has been recorded by hundreds of artists. Preceded in death by parents, Charles and Virgie Andrews White; brother, Charles White; sisters, Sadie Mae Fleming, Billie Johnson and Wadine Phadelia White; grandson, Joe-Dodd White and close nephew, Don Wesley Johnson.
