In the wake of Daryle Singletary‘s unexpected death on Feb. 12, fans and friends are rallying to support his family as they face the costs of a memorial service for the ’90s country icon. A verified fund for the Singletary Family has been established through the Franklin Synergy Bank, according to a representative for Singletary.

Singletary died unexpectedly in his Lebanon, Tenn., home, after playing back-to-back shows on the road over the weekend of Feb. 9-11. He leaves behind his wife, Holly, and four children: 7-year-old twin boys Mercer and Jonah, 5-year-old daughter Nora Caroline and 3-year-old daughter Charlotte Rose.
After Singletary’s death, Platinum Records Nashville released a previously recorded song from the artist, with proceeds from the track linked to an unsanctioned fundraising account for Singletary’s family. The singer’s longtime business partner, Chuck Rhodes, delivered a cease-and-desist letter to the label since the song was recorded by Singletary as a demo only and not for release, and because his family had no knowledge of the fundraising campaign.
Singletary released his debut album, a self-titled project, in 1995; two of its singles — “I Let Her Lie” and “Too Much Fun” — reached the Top 5 on the country charts. Throughout his career, Singletary released six additional studio albums, the most recent of which, There’s Still a Little Country Left, came out in 2015. He charted more than a dozen singles, including a third Top 5 hit, “Amen Kind of Love.” The singer’s active tour schedule supported his growing family during his final years.
