Though he was born in Georgia, Otis Redding will forever be linked to Wisconsin as he died in Madison in a plane crash at the tender age of 26. While he didn’t write “Try A Little Tenderness”, he had a huge hit with the song a year before his death. We get another version of the song from Billy Preston, whose birthday was last Friday.
