    None of them are named Statler, and only the Reids are brothers.
    They named themselves after a brand of tissue and joked that they could have been the 'Kleenex Brothers.'
    'Flowers on the Wall' was their only pop hit.
    They were discovered by Johnny Cash, who featured them in his live performances and his TV show.
    'Flowers on the Wall' was featured in the film 'Pulp Fiction' and quoted by Bruce Willis in 'Die Hard with a Vengence.'
    For 25 years (1970-95), they held a Fourth of July festival in their hometown that drew up to 100,000 fans.
