Singer Charlie Robison’s Sudden Death Following Cardiac Arrest
Texas country singer and songwriter Charlie Robison’s cause of death was confirmed by his family representative. He died at a San Antonio, Texas hospital on September 10, 2023.
Robison’s representatives confirmed the heartbreaking news that the singer after suffered cardiac arrest and other complications.
Charles Fitzgerald Robison was born on September 1, 1964, in Houston, Texas, U.S. He was a country music singer-songwriter. His brother, Bruce Robison, and his sister, Robyn Ludwick, are also singer-songwriters.
Robison launched his career in the ’80s and released the solo debut, “Bandera,” which was named after the Texas Hill Country town where his family had a ranch for eight generations.
Robyn Ludwick shared a tribute to Charlie on her social media account Sunday, and said her heart was “broken in the deepest most irreparable way.”
“My big brother Charlie passed away in the arms of his loved ones. Please play some Charlie Robison on Repeat. He would want it that way,” she wrote on Facebook.
He grew up playing music with his brother Bruce and released nine albums throughout his professional career.
Following his 1995 album, he attempted to go more mainstream, but as he wrote on his website, did not want to be “boxed-in” with his music or persona.
“After a brief deal with a Nashville major label that ended because of his refusal to be artistically boxed-in and packaged as the latest hunky hat act, he signed with Sony Music‘s Lucky Dog label and released two studio albums,” Robison’s bio said.
