The Recording Academy® Statement Re: Andy Griffith
July 3, 2012
GRAMMY® winner Andy Griffith was an American television icon bringing beloved characters into family homes for more than 50 years with shows such as “The Andy Griffith Show” and “Matlock.” In addition to acting, Griffith had a passion for music and recorded a number of albums, including I Love To Tell The Story — 25 Timeless Hymns, which garnered him a GRAMMY Award for Best Southern Gospel, Country Gospel Or Bluegrass Gospel Album. He was an immense talent and a true gift to the entertainment industry and will be greatly missed. We extend our deepest sympathies to his family, friends and fans.

I have only fond memories from my childhood of watching Andy Griffith on television and hearing the whistling theme song. He is a personality who will be greatly missed.
