This is unbelievably sad news … country singer Daryle Singletary died early Monday morning. He was 46 years old. No word yet on what the cause of death is.
He played last Friday and, from what it seemed, everything was fine.
Daryle always kept true to the more traditional sound of country. May he rest in peace.
