Singletary was born in Cairo, Georgia and got start in music as a child singing gospel songs with his brother and cousins. He moved to Nashville in 1990 where he played in local nightclubs before being signed by Evergreen Records in 1992. Thanks to a boost from members of Randy Travis’ band, Singletary signed with Irving Azoff’s Warner-distributed Giant label, which released his Travis-coproduced debut album in 1995.

 

The album spawned the country hits “I Let Her Lie,” “Too Much Fun” and “I’m Living Up to Her Low Expectations.”

 He had a gig booked for this Thursday night in Hickory, North Carolina, and had performed Saturday night at Cowboys in Scott, Louisiana.

 

Singletary is survived by his wife, Holly; two sons, Jonah and Mercer; two daughters, Nora and Charlotte; his parents, Roger and Anita Singletary; and brother Kevin Singletary.
