Country Music Star Mourned: Singer-Songwriter’s Tragic Passing at 59


Charlie Robison, Country -Songwriter, Passes Away at 59

Texas Charlie Robison has died at the age of 59 after suffering complications from a medical procedure. Robison was known for his rootsy anthems and had a successful career until he was forced to retire due to the loss of his singing ability.

Robison launched his career in the late 1980s, playing in local Austin before forming his own Millionaire Playboys. In 1996, he released his solo “Bandera,” named after the Texas Hill Country where his family has a ranch.

After signing with Sony’s Lucky Dog imprint in 1998, Robison’s 2001 album “Step Right Up” produced his only Top 40 country song, “I Want You Bad.”

In 2018, Robison announced his permanent retirement from the stage and studio after the ability to sing. He served as a judge on the TV show “Nashville Star” for one year.

Robison is survived by his wife, Kristen Robison, and four children and stepchildren. He recorded his album “Beautiful Day” during his breakup with his first wife, Emily Strayer, a founding member of The Chicks.

His final album, “High Life” released in 2013, showcased a rock sound and included a cover version of Bob Dylan’s “When I Paint My Masterpiece.”

Memorial services for Charlie Robison are currently pending.
