Joe "Red" Hayes was a fiddle player and singer-songwriter who co wrote "Satisfied Mind". He was born April 4, 1926, toured with Faron Young and Vassar Clements on their 1973 UK Tour, and died on stage on March 2, 1973 in Manchester UK. On the tour they were known as the "County Deputies" with Connie Smith. "Red was more of a musician than a singer but a good songwriter, when I knew him on his UK tour he had a ranch in the USA where he let underprivileged children stay." Mary Oglesby (Country Couples).
