Slim Whitman, known for selling millions of albums and popularizing country music worldwide, died on Wednesday in Florida.
Slim's falsetto yodeling skills entertained countless fans for six decades, including Johnny Carson who was well known for taking cracks at his good friend Slim every once in awhile!
Oddly enough, the next-in-line Tonight Show host, Jimmy Fallon, tried out his yodeling abilities earlier this week as well. We think he and Brad Pitt did Slim proud!
Rest in peace, Slim Whitman.
We know you're yodeling in a better place now.
Check out a classic Tonight Show clip of Carson's impression of Slim Whitman yodeling …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
