As 2019 comes to a close and we look forward to an new year, let us take a moment to remember the country and roots music greats we lost in this past year, from bona fide legends like Earl Thomas Conley, to those who left us too soon like Neal Casal, to Hall of Famers like Harold Bradley, and major influencers like Dick Dale.
Veteran country music writer, well-respected journalist, and radio broadcaster Chuck Dauphin has passed away. Well known for his work at Billboard as a ‘615’ columnist where he began writing in 2011, Chuck Dauphin also wrote for Rolling Stone, At Home Nashville, Roughstock, and most recently Sounds Like Nashville, along with other periodicals.
Friends and family of veteran country music journalist Chuck Dauphin are asking for prayers as he works to recover from an injury after a fall, and remains hospitalized in critical care due to complications with diabetes. Dauphin fell and broke his arm just below his shoulder and was admitted to the Maury Regional Medical Center in Columbia, TN.
