Some of our younger country music fans may not recognize his name. But, if they listen to any country radio station that sometimes plays the ‘classics’ or ‘oldies’, they are probably familiar with his music. Those of us who have been country fans for many decades know him, and his music, well. Daron Norwood, probably best known for his 1994 hit single, “If It Wasn’t for Her I Wouldn’t Have You,” was found dead in his Hereford, Texas, apartment. He was 49.
A spokesperson for the Hereford , Captain Kristen Williams, said on Thursday that investigators do not suspect foul play inhis death. His body was found on Wednesday, by his landlord. The cause of death is pending.
Police DepartmentDaron was last seen on Tuesday night, with some friends. The landlord stopped to check on him on Wednesday, and found the singer’s body in a bedroom. Capt. Williams said the body had no signs of trauma.
Here is Daron, and the song most of us remember him for, “If It Wasn’t for Her I Wouldn’t Have You.”
In 1994 he released his self-titled debut album. His 1995 album, “Ready, Willing and Able,” included the songs “If It Wasn’t For Her I Wouldn’t Have you” and “Cowboys Don’t Cry.” Daron released the album “I Still believe” in 2012. The two singles he released from that album, “In God We Trust” and “Take Me Back” never realy did anything on country charts. I will miss Daron. A lot of country music fans will. He sang country music.
Back with more soon!
