Here’s some sad news today for fans of 90s country music. Daron Norwood, who had country top 40 songs such as If It Wasn’t For Her I Wouldn’t Have You and Cowboys Don’t Cry, has passed away. He was 49.
According to various outlets, Norwood was found in his Texas apartment by his landlord who called 9-1-1. Medical personnel responded to the call around 2 p.m. on Wednesday and found the singer dead in his bedroom.
No cause of death has been revealed.
Norwood released two albums in the 90s before stepping away from the music scene to take care of his personal life after substance abuse had become a problem for him. He later returned as a motivational speaker and released his third and final album, I Still Believe, in 2012.
