The world lost two studio family members recently. Our thoughts and prayers are with their families and friends during these difficult times.
Tribute to J.T. Corenflos by Taste of Country
"J.T. Corenflos was something of a riff master in country music, and the many artists whose albums he touched took to social media upon hearing of his death to make sure their fans knew that a studio legend had played his final note.
Luke Bryan shared a compilation of songs Corenflos played on, singling out the signature riffs of hits like "Country Girl," "All My Friends Say," "Country Man" and "Huntin', Fishin' and Lovin' Everyday." That's just a sample of the 56-year-old's dynamic catalog."
Tribute to Billy Joe Shaver by Taste of Country
"Billy Joe Shaver lived the way he wrote songs, Jason Isbell notes in a tweet honoring the outlaw country legend following his death on Wednesday (Oct. 28). The singer-songwriter was one of many to pay tribute to the late Shaver, who was 81.
'Billy Joe Shaver might've been the only true outlaw who ever made his living writing about the inner workings of his heart,' Isbell writes. 'The realest of them all.'"
