Country singer Daryle Singletary died suddenly Monday morning.
Singletary died at his home in Nashville. The cause of death is not immediately known, but it was unexpected.
Daryle had 5 Top 40 hits, including “I Let Her Lie” and “Amen Kind of Love.” He also scored a number 4 song with “Too Much Fun.”
Daryle performed what was his last show this past Saturday night at Cowboys. There were no apparent health issues or signs of trouble Saturday night. He put on a great performance to an enthusiastic crowd that loved his traditional country selections. He was supported on what would become his final show by Richard LeBouef and newcomer Lane Touchet.
On a Personal Note: I was honored to bring Daryle Singletary up on stage Saturday Night at Cowboys. I was honored to sing along with him for most of the show Saturday night. My immediate thoughts are with his family and band, the “Range Hands” you could tell the tightness of the band and how they really enjoyed playing together.
“Mr Country Music Dayle Singletary”

Rest in peace Buddy, you sang country like country should be sung.

Very sad news this morning. We lost a true fan of real country music, @Darylesing. We just worked with him two months ago at NFR. He did so much to keep this music alive. Here's his last performance, just last night…https://t.co/2mEB3X5zMj
