Died Too Soon. It's a Sad Fraternity
The "Amen Kind of Love" singer started his career as a southern gospel singer, often traveling with his parents growing up. Artists like George Jones, Ricky Skaggs, Rhonda Vincent, Randy Travis and Keith Whitley were big influences. A demo he cut for Travis eventually led to his commercial success.
