The news came over the wire late last night that Peggy Sue Evers
, notorious Alison Krauss imposter, had violated the terms of her probation and was now back in jail in Fayetteville. Here at the Arkansas Times
, we join our neighbors to the North in issuing a sigh of relief.
Evers, of course, was arrested last year after convincing a 75-year-old man named Don Fulton that she was country singer Alison Krauss, explaining
that she'd "changed her name to escape the paparazzi." She managed to wrangle over $200,000 from Fulton before the police stepped in, alerted by representatives from his bank.
Fulton is certainly a tragic figure in this story, but there's something about Evers's boldness and desperation that seems almost equally devestating. The title of a Grammy-winning Alison Krauss album comes to mind: "Lonely Runs Both Ways."
The "real" Alison Krauss, by the way, is set to perform at the Walmart AMP
in July, alongside Willie Nelson and Jason Isbell.
