Daryle Singletary, best known for his songs “Too Much Fun,” “I Let Her Lie,” and “Amen Kind of Love,” died Monday morning at his home in Lebanon, Tennesse. According to a rep for the singer, the cause of death is “pending”, but sources close to the family say it was a blood clot and his death was sudden.
Singletary began his career as a Southern gospel singer and sited Ricky Skaggs, George Jones and Keith Whitley as his musical influences. The country singer had played concerts as recently as this past weekend in Dadeville, Ala., and in Lafayette, La.
He is survived by his wife, Holly, and their four children.
Fellow artists have been posting their condolences on Twitter
