"It's always sad to hear about someone who was taken too young, but when you lose someone who helped carve out the emotions we dealt with in life with song, the grief is felt by many. You are a true country legend and will remain at the top of my playlist forever. Thank you for the memories and feelings that your music brought to life. We love you and may you continue to play for the angels."
"I just learned of the tragic passing of Big D Singletary. I had the pleasure of meeting and spending time with him on one of his trips to Miami at Dolphins Stadium. He was a kind and gentle person that always made time for his fans, which I will always remain. My prayers go out to his family as this is such a major loss of a beautiful person at such a young age. I will carry your music with me always sir. Thank you for being such an inspiration."
