In Remembrance: Daryle Singletary (1971-2018)

90s hitmaker Daryle Singletary unexpectedly passed away this morning at age 46. He enjoyed a string of success beginning in 1995 when his second single, “I Let Her Lie” hit #2. He would chart in the top 5 twice more with “Too Much Fun” (1995, #4) and “Amen Kind of Love” (1997, #2). Singletary will be remembered as a standard-bearer for traditional country music. He released a traditional country duets album with Rhonda Vincent entitled American Grandstand last July. He played his final concert, which was also his first show in 2018, last Friday (Feb. 9) at the Rodeo Club near Dadeville, Alabama.

Here are a few of our favorite songs from his career:

I Let Her Lie:

    Tragic and unexpected news.

    That’s bad. He was a helluva singer. I remember he was a protege of Randy Travis–though I don’t think they ever recorded anything together.
    This news should inspire those of us who should to stick to a diet.

    A superb talent. His voice will be missed.
    Had Daryle had been born a decade or so earlier he would have arrived on the scene just in time for the New Traditionalist era and likely would have become an even bigger star. Unfortunately his career began just as country music was beginning to lose it’s heart & soul.

    R.I.P. Daryle
