Taste Of Country reported recently on a tragic lakeside dock accident that claimed the life of renowned country music songwriter Troy Jones last Friday in Fayetteville, Alabama.
The 64-year-old songwriter was on his boat dock when an electrical accident caused a live electrical current to touch the dock unexpectedly, killing him instantly. The singer, a native of Port St. Joe, Florida who had settled in Sylacauga, Alabama decades ago, was nominated for a Grammy as well as for ‘song of the year’ nominations for the CMA and ACM awards for the #1 hit Billy Currington song ‘People Are Crazy’. The songwriter also worked with musicians such as Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, Trace Adkins, Tim McGraw and Alan Jackson in his songwriting career with Polygram Publishing and Carnival Music.
