Singer, Songwriter. Known as "The Voice" because of his rich baritone singing, this Woodland, Alabama native turned the musical talent he acquired by being a part of a gospel music singing family to develop a successful country music career. In 1961 he accompanied his brother to California where he sang as a member of the Golden State Boys, the Hillmen and The Gosdin Brothers. After moderate success he moved to Atlanta, Georgia where in 1976 he signed a recording contract and embarked upon a solo career. The next year he had his first top ten hit with the release of "Yesterday's Gone". During the 1980s he had three number one hits, "I Can Tell By the Way You Dance (You're Gonna Love Me Tonight)" (1983), "Set 'Em Up Joe" (1988) and "I'm Still Crazy" (1989). In 1989 another hit "Chiseled in Stone" was chosen "Song of the Year" by the Country Music Association. He had almost twenty top ten hits during his thirty year career with over forty singles and eight albums reaching the country music charts. He died in Nashville, Tennessee after suffering a stroke.
