Jarrod Birmingham: Sometimes a persons talent greatly exceeds the amount of success they ever receive… it’s one of the things that’s hard to ever comprehend. Today we lost one of the greatest singers to ever walk this planet and few people will ever even know. I’m not sure what Rest In Peace really means… I know what it stands for… Daryle I hope you lived in peace knowing that every country singer out there respected you and wished they could sing like you. That man sang the #?*! out of every note that came out of his mouth! No other way to say it! He will be missed.
