Relatives, friends and fans of Grand Ole Opry star Billy Walker paid their final respects.

A funeral service was held for the legendary performer and his wife Bettie.

The couple died early Sunday along with two members of Billy Walker's band when a van they were in overturned near Montgomery, Alabama.

Walker was scheduled to perform at an Annual Benefit concert that night in Nashville.

Walker joined the Grand Ole Opry in 1960. Some of his greatest hits include "Charlie's Shoes" and "Cross the Brazos at Waco."

Walker was 77 years old.
