          Both of these gentlemen graced the stage with Ray Benson and Asleep At The Wheel at some point in their careers.
          Johnny Gimble doesn't sing, but in Cotton Eyed Joe, he is featured on the fiddle.

                Never knew Swayze sang. That song would have gone well with the movie "Ghost".

                      Yep, but it had already been used 3 years before in Dirty Dancing.

                      From Wikipedia:

                      Swayze and Stacy Widelitz co-wrote the song in 1984. It was originally intended for the soundtrack of Grandview, U.S.A. and was meant to be about Jamie Lee Curtis' character in the film. However, the song was not used in that film. During production of Dirty Dancing in 1987, Swayze played the demo for producer Linda Gottlieb and director Emile Ardolino. They loved it and passed it on to Jimmy Ienner and Bob Feiden, the soundtrack's executive producers. It was recorded for the soundtrack in November 1986, with Michael Lloyd producing. The song, like the film in which it was featured, was a success, reaching number three on the Billboard Hot 100 and number one on Adult Contemporary, and was a hit around the world. It is still in rotation on radio. The soundtrack album was number one for 18 weeks.

                      During his appearance on the August 7, 2020 episode of the podcast The Joe Rogan Experience, actor Rob Lowe mentions that Swayze tried to shop the song to the producers of Lowe's 1986 film, Youngblood for inclusion on its soundtrack, but the song was rejected.

                        Way more have passed on than we will EVER remember, fitch270.
                        I'm beginning to see this thread as an exercise in futility.

                        Had you ever of Lonnie Glosson?

                        How about:

                        Wayne Raney - "The Garden Where Mother Used To Pray"

                        https://youtu.be/sbPe7UXdIFs

                        Conspicuously absent?

                        Bill Monroe the "Father of Bluegrass"

                        Bill Monroe - "Blue Moon Of Kentucky"

                          Another good one Fitch!

                          Continuing with the disco theme, here's one by Donna Summer (1948 - 2012) who died from lung cancer at age 63. I remember dancing to her music back in the day. Here's one that PigHuntress likes to perform on karaoke nights... 'Hot Stuff'.

                            I’ve been posting mostly from memory but a few have popped up while pulling up songs. I’m beginning to think that if you averaged up the ages of the deceased that you could consider “professional musician” as a very dangerous job.

                            Not futile, but definitely making me feel my own mortality.
