I usually don’t wake up at 2 AM and get on Facebook , but I’m glad this news didn’t get lost in my crazy Facebook feed. Rest in peace good sir. Your music lives forever. Going back to sleep praying for his family.

For transparency sake:

An official statement should be forthcoming.
Trust us, we wish it wasn’t true too.

RIP, Jerry Jeff.

I was at the Todd Snider show at ACL when JJ got on stage and danced barefoot with Amanda Shires as Jason Isabel looked on. What a collection of talent that was. So sad.

“One day I looked up and he’s pushin’ eighty
He’s got brown tobacco stains all down his chin
To me he’s one of the heroes of this country
So why’s he all dressed up like them old men”
