An online fundraiser is collecting funds to help the family of Daryle Singletary pay for his funeral.
When the 46-year-old “Amen Kind of Love” singer passed away unexpectedly on Feb. 12 in his Nashville-area home, Singletary had just played a pair of out-of-town dates. The singer, known for his string of charting hits in the 1990s, performed live and recorded until the end, supporting a growing family while sharing the music he loved. Friends of Singletary are taking some of the burden off his widow Holly and their four small children by raising funds to cover burial and funeral costs and other family expenses.
An online campaign titled the Daryle Singletary Foundation “Keepin’ It Country” aims to raise funds for his survivors in their time of need. The fundraiser also accepts checks mailed to the following address:
Franklin Synergy Bank
C/O The Daryle Singletary Foundation Keepin’ It Country
Attn: Ellen May
Senior Vice President
Sports, Music and Entertainment Group
33 Music Square West Unit 110B
Nashville, TN 37203
The official fundraiser began on Feb. 21 and so far has raised over $11,000 of its $100,000 goal.

Confidants of the Singletary family began the fundraiser to create a official way for fans to donate. It was created after an unsanctioned fundraiser tied to the posthumous release of demo track “She’s Been Cheating On Us” by Platinum Records Nashville caused controversy, forcing longtime manager and business partner Chuck Rhodes to send the label a cease-and-desist order.
