NASHVILLE, Tenn. - (AP) Singer Vern Gosdin, who recorded country music hits like the award-winning "Chiseled in Stone" during a 30-year career, has died.
Gosdin was 74 years old. Michael Illobre, funeral director at Mount Olivet Funeral Home in Nashville, said Gosdin was under hospice care and died late Tuesday at an area hospital.
The singer's administrative assistant, Dawn Hall, told a local newspaper that he suffered a stroke a few weeks ago.
"Chiseled in Stone" was voted 1989 song of the year by the Country Music Association.
Gosdin's other hits include "Set 'em Up Joe," "I Can Tell by the Way You Dance," "I'm Still Crazy," "That Just About Does It," "Who You Gonna Blame It on This Time," "Way Down Deep," "Dream of Me" and "Yesterday's Gone," a duet with Emmylou Harris.
