1990s Country Star Doug Supernaw Dead at 60

Doug Supernaw, 60, died on Nov. 13 at his home in Texas, according to a statement on his Facebook page. Doug was diagnosed with Stage IV lung and bladder cancer in February 2019.

“It is with great sadness that we announced the passing of Gold Record country artist Doug Supernaw,” read the statement, in part. “Diagnosed in February 2019 with advanced Stage IV lung and bladder cancer, Doug began an aggressive treatment schedule with the hopes of shrinking his numerous cancer cells. Fighting the good fight for almost two years, Doug’s cancer had spread to his brain and spine, and he was placed in Hospice care in October 2020. Doug Supernaw passed away peacefully at his home in his beloved Texas on November 13, 2020. He is survived by his third wife, his children and grandchildren. Respect for their privacy is great appreciated.”

Doug was a mainstay on the country charts in the early 1990s with Top 5 hits like “I Don’t Call Him Daddy,” “Enough Hours in the Night” and “Reno.”

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
