When actor and Rockford Files semi-regular Stuart Margolin ("Angel Martin") recorded a honky tonk and western swing album for Warner Brothers, Garner wrote the liner notes.
In fact, Garner recorded a duet with Waylon: "I'll Find It Where I Can" appeared on the 1983 album Waylon and Company. Garner kicks it off.
At least once, he sat in with Waylon onstage, sharing a mike with Waylon's wife Jessi Colter to harmonize on the Outlaw classic "Luckenbach, Texas."
We won't see his like again, not on the big screen or the flat screen.
