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.

Andrew Lloyd Webber contemplated committing suicide

  Andrew Lloyd Webber contemplated committing suicide Andrew Lloyd Webber Andrew Lloyd Webber contemplated committing suicide at the height of his depression. The 69-year-old composer has opened up about his struggles in his new memoir 'Unmasked', revealing he considered taking his own life more than once as he battled with a number of health issues, including prostate cancer in 2009 and severe back pain. He wrote: "It was absolute agony and utterly despairing. I did think of suicide. It was so painful. I couldn't sleep and you go on thinking about it. "You have all those ridiculous painkillers and none of them working and you just think, 'I shall take the whole lot of them.'" Lloyd Webber also admitted to experiencing lots of self-doubt during his younger years, which led to him developing depression. The theatre pioneer shared: "I got quite depressed; it's something that possibly affects artists. "It was one of those moments where I thought everything had got on top of me. These things are illogical." Lloyd Webber recalled one particular incident from his youth when he stole painkiller tablets from his parents' bathroom, then bought aspirin from two different chemists, and headed off for what he presumed would be his last-ever journey on the London Underground. The British star admitted he felt very isolated at the time, but also that he couldn't bring himself to follow through on his intention. He confessed: "I felt very alone at the time. It was pretty much at the end of the line, quite literally because I went to the end of the Central Line, but then took a bus to Lavenham." More recently, Lloyd Webber said that his third wife Madeleine Gurdon - who he's been married to since 1991 - has helped him to escape the suicidal thoughts.
