Curtis Potter, noted in Texas country music circles as a “singer’s singer,” has died at age 75.
Best known as the longtime frontman of Hank Thompson’s acclaimed Brazos Valley Boys, Potter passed away surrounded by his family at Hendrick Medical Center in Abilene, Texas, on Saturday, Jan. 23. He had congestive heart failure, complicated by pneumonia.
The Brazos Valley Boys won Billboard’s Touring Band of the Year award 14 times. Potter, a bass player and vocalist, joined the group in 1959 and remained with it for the next 13 years.
He also had an extensive résumé as a solo artist and record maker.

It's also R.I.P for The Texas Music Chart. Last chart has been published with the passing of Ed Shane last year
