County singer Daron Norwood was found dead in his Hereford, Texas apartment on July 22. Police do not suspect foul play. Norwood’s landlord was the one who found his body. He was 49.
Norwood, who was best known for his songs “If It Wasn’t For Her I Wouldn’t Have You” and “Cowboys Don’t Cry,” quit singing in 1995, the same year he got sober. He told the Lubbock-Avalanche Journal that at that time in his life, he was taking 20 to 25 shots of Jack Daniels a night. He did go back to singing in 2012. He released an album called I Still Believe, which included the single “Take Me Back.”
