Jack was married to Jeanne Pruitt, country singer in her own right, and was Marty Robbins road guitarist for a few years.
Marty like to joke when introducing his band guys and often referred to Jack with some asian name since Jack had almond shaped eyes.
Jack, as I recall, played a large body archtop, might have been a Super 400 or the like. Fine guitarist.

Jeanne Pruett was born Norma Jean Bowman in Pell City, Alabama in 1937. She was one of ten children, and since a young age she listened to the Grand Ole Opry and also harmonized with her brothers and sisters. Pruett started singing in high school originally. Eventually, she married her husband Jack Pruett. In 1956, the couple moved out to Nashville, Tennessee. Pruett's husband was guitarist and one day even became a guitarist for legendary Country singer Marty Robbins. While raising her family, Jeanne began to write her own songs and eventually became secretary at Marty Robbins' publishing company.
