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!!!

    Slim Whitman (Larry W Jones 06/19/2013) (song#6690)

    Slim Whitman had a Secret Love
    Rose Marie was her Irish name
    But then Tomorrow Never Comes
    And for Slim, It’s All In The Game

    Slim sang the Indian Love Call
    But the North Wind stole Rose Marie
    And Love Song Of The Waterfall
    Had Slim’s poor heart Broken In Three

    Slim’s songs rang from the Singing Hills
    But One Dream was never to be
    Where The Lilacs Grow there now trills
    I Remember You, Rose Marie
