Death claims two country music performers
Texas native Don Williams, who forged his own musical identity in the 1970s with a unique and low-key style of country that earned him the nickname “The Gentle Giant,” passed away on Friday.
A press release from the singer's PR team confirms his death "after a short illness," saying that funeral arrangements are pending. He was 78 years old.
A member of a popular country band was one of two people killed in a helicopter crash in Burlington County, New Jersey on Friday.
The pilot, James Evan Robinson, declared an emergency and was trying to land the helicopter on approach when they crashed in a wooded area on Fostertown Road in Medford at the airport.
Troy Gentry, 50, half of the country duo Montgomery Gentry, was extricated from the helicopter and transported to Virtua Marlton Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
