Country singer and Grand Ole Opry member Hank Locklin has died. He was 91.

Locklin died Sunday at his home in Brewton, Ala., according to Opry publicist Jessie Schmidt.

Locklin's smooth tenor voice made hits of "Send Me the Pillow You Dream On" and "Please Help Me I'm Falling." He recently released an album, "By the Grace of God," which was his 65th album.

Locklin was a longtime Opry member, joining the country music broadcast in 1960. Schmidt said Locklin's family is planning a private service and burial.
