AccuRadio Song Of The Day-Daryle Singletary

Artist:Daryle Singletary
Song:I Let Her Lie
Album:Now and Again

Neo-traditional country singer Daryle Singletary owes most of his success to country music star Randy Travis who got him a record deal. Singletary had three top five country hits in the mid-90s including I Let Her Lie in 1995. Singletary is still around but he hasn't recorded since 2009. He was born Mar. 10, 1971 in Cairo, GA and he grew up singing in church. He moved to Nashville after graduating from high school. Singletary became a demo singer and one of those demos got the attention of Randy Travis. Travis recommended Singletary to his management team and soon after, Singletary signed with Giant Records. Giant president James Stroud produced Singletary's 1995 debut CD Daryle Singletary. I Let Her Lie was the second single and it reached #2 on the Country Singles chart. The song was written by Tim Johnson who worked frequently with Rory Lee Feek of Joey + Rory. The two produced teen country singer Blaine Larsen. Johnson died in 2012. Singletary's two other top five hits were Too Much Fun in 1995 and Amen Kind Of Love in 1996. Giant dropped him after none of the singles from his 1998 CD Ain't It The Truth were hits. Singletary signed with Audium/Koch and released Now and Again in 2000. This is a greatest hits CD with some new music. He continued to record for Koch until E1 bought them in 2005. Singletary last recorded in 2009 but he still tours. It's doubtful that he can return to his 1995 success. Here's the video for I Let Her Lie by Daryle Singletary.
