This week's winner: Jeffrey Pawlicki of Palm Harbor knew that in 1973 Gram Parsons' pals, keeping a pact with the late singer, "cremated" his body at the Joshua Tree National Monument in California.
This week's question: Jazz great Hoagy Carmichael recently has been getting lots of attention, with a major biography and reissues of classic recordings.
Carmichael, a Hoosier, is responsible for writing some of the most popular tunes in the American songbook, including one that became an official song for a state he had never set foot in. To get your name in the random drawing for the Weekend T-shirt, tell me the name of the state song.
