Singer Daryle Singletary died unexpectedly at his Lebanon, Tenn. home Monday morning (Feb. 12) at the age of 46. No cause of death has been announced.
Singletary was a native of Georgia, born in Cairo, Georgia in 1971. He was a traditionalist and was brought to the attention of country music fans by his hero, Randy Travis in the mid-1990’s.
In 1995 he got his first record deal with Giant Records and went on to record hits like “I’m Living Up to Her Low Expectations”, “I Let Her Lie” and “Amen Kind of Love.”
Singletary performed at the Chattooga County Agricultural Fair in 2015 and also recorded a single – “Drinkin’ New Wine” with local country-gospel music artist Michael Lee Stancil.
Last year, Singletary and bluegrass star Rhonda Vincent paired for the album American Grandstand.
One of Singletary’s final performances was on Jan. 31 at Mel Tillis’ memorial at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium.
