Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Singer-songwriter Daryle Singletary, whose stone-country vocals paired with unapologetically traditional tunes earned him a string of hits in the mid-Nineties, including "I Let Her Lie" and "Too Much Fun," died Monday morning at his home in Lebanon, Tennessee, east of Nashville. An official cause of death has yet to be determined. Singletary was 46.

Born in Cairo, Georgia, Singletary, whose father was a postmaster and mother a hairdresser, performed gospel music in his youth alongside his brother and cousins. Relocating to Nashville in 1990, Singletary played local clubs and signed a deal with independent Evergreen Records in 1992, issuing a pair of singles. Members of Randy Travis' band heard the singer and, at their urging, Travis would soon align himself with Singletary, co-producing his debut LP for Giant Records in 1995. The album generated his first hits, "I'm Living Up to Her Low Expectations," followed by the Number Two single "I Let Her Lie," and a second Top Five tune, "Too Much Fun." A year later, he released his best-charting hit, "Amen Kind of Love." In 2002, he recorded what would be his last Top 30 hit, "The Note," delivering a chilling cover of a song previously cut by Conway Twitty, as well as Tammy Wynette.
