Kevin Sharp Dies At 43

Posted on: April 20th, 2014 by Chris

Cancer survivor and country artist Kevin Sharp has died at the age of 43. He passed away last night (4/19) of ongoing complications from what his website says were “past stomach surgeries and digestives issues.”

Kevin made a splash right off the bat in 1997 as his first song “Nobody Knows” stayed at the top of the country charts for 4 weeks. His debut album, Measure of a Man, was released the same year, and turned out the top 5 hits, “If You Love Somebody” and “She’s Sure Taking It Well.”

In 1989, Kevin was battling fatigue and dizziness which led doctors to perform tests where they discovered he had bone cancer. They gave him little chance to survive but, after years of treatment, he finally beat it by 1993.

As a cancer survivor, he was very active in the Make-A-Wish Foundation, wrote an inspirational book about his experience and toured as a motivational speaker.

The pair say Tom Petty’s “Here Comes My Girl” was the driving force that had them putting pen to paper.

Rhett told WNCT, that he told Ben “Man we need to write a country version of a guy who’s had a bad day at work or whatever and he comes home and his girl, all she has to do is say baby and all the bad things go away.”

Jason heads out on tour next month and is working on new music he hopes to have out in the fall.
