Don Gibson, songwriter, and singer, has passed away at age 75.
Among his songs:
“I can’t stop loving you” that Ray Charles had a major hit with, but was actually recorded by over 700 artists…… he penned “oh, Lonesome me” that same day..(Yes, the Kentucky Headhunters had a hit with it, but it’s been around forever)… Two major hits…  “Sweet Dreams” was another one of his.. that many, including Emmylou Harris had a hit with.

A great loss…
