    Hawkshaw Hawkins Three-Piece Suit. Although Hawkins never had great success as a recording artist, he was a prominent member of the Grand Ole Opry by 1955. His signature tune was "The Sunny Side of the Mountain." Hawkins did have some Top 10 Country songs in the late 1940s and early 1950s, but he is forever remembered for having died in the same plane crash that killed Cowboy Copas and Patsy Cline in 1963. This jacket, pants and neckerchief set also includes a satin shirt, and was designed by Rodeo Ben. Hawkshaw's name, as well as the designer label, is sewn into both the pants and coat. This blue outfit was obviously well worn and has some stains and fraying on the inside satin lining, but is still a wonderful display piece from a Country Music legend.
