Daryle Singletary's Final Concert Ended With a Haunting Cover
Footage of Daryle Singletary's final performance, given on Saturday night (Feb. 10), is making its way around the internet following his death early Monday morning (Feb. 12). The '90s country artist's last concert took place at Cowboy's, a nightclub in Lafayette, La., and closed with a cover of Johnny Paycheck's "Old Violin."
Singletary originally recorded his cover of "Old Violin" for his 2002 album That's Why I Sing This Way, a record full of country classics. Merle Haggard, Rhonda Vincent and more lent their voices to the project; "Old Violin" is the album's final track and features Paycheck.
Written by Paycheck, "Old Violin" ends with lyrics that feel especially eerie following Singletary's death: "And just like that, it hit me / That old violin and I were just alike / We'd give our all to country music / And soon we'd give our life."
