Who is Tim McGraw singing about in "Things Change"? (3 different persons/groups)?

They wouldn't let him play the opry

With whiskey on his breath

And it didn't take'em long

to figure out what they missed

He went down that lost highway

Underneath the purple sky

A legend disappeared before his time

Things Change

They said he was the devil

dressed in gold leme

The way he shook his hips

out there on that stage

But before that faithful day

He left Tennessee

All of them were calling him the king

Things Change

Well they like to call them hippies

outlaws with guitars

But they brought a little poetry

To the honky tonks and bars

They might've got a little crazy

They might have flew a little too high

Somewhere somebody's playing their song tonight

Things Change

(Don't you know things change)

    Not sure about the first person, Maybe Hank Williams Sr.

    The second one sounds like Elvis Presley

    I think the third one is singers in general
