RIP Andy Griffith

Whether the home-spun small town sheriff or the maniacal Lonesome Rhoades, he was a force to reckon with.

    Ricky Cameron, I bet you remember the appearances of The Darlings on The Andy Griffith Show — especially the Darling boys, played by The Dillards.

    Oh. My. I just discovered that there was an episode on which they performed “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms.”

    Here, especially for Rick, Andy sings with The Darlings (really the bluegrass band The Dillards): Leaning on the Everlasting Arms.

    (Doug Dillard died just over a month ago.)

    Great trailer, by the way.
