Singletary scored his first big hits
in country music in the mid-1990s with songs like the tender “I Let Her Lie,” the fun-loving romp “Too Much Fun” and the stone cold country hit “Amen Kind of Love,” which all made the top 5 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. Although chart success had eluded him in recent years, Singletary was still in demand as a performer
and maintained an active touring schedule, taking his traditional country sound on the road.
In late January, he participated in the memorial service for country music legend Mel Tillis at the Ryman Auditorium. He had also been scheduled to perform in Dadeville, Alabama, as recently as Feb. 9, and in Lafayette, Louisiana, on Feb. 10.
