[TMP News Pick] Charlie Robison Announces Official Retirement

Singer-songwriter Charlie Robison announced to Facebook that he has officially retired from the stage and the studio. Robison shared he suffered complications from a surgical procedure he underwent this year, leaving him with the permanent inability to sing. “It’s been an amazing ride and I cannot tell you what the last 25 years has meant to me,” Robison stated. “I thank you all for everything you’ve given me and I hope I was able to give you a fraction of the happiness you gave me. It was a hell of a ride but as they say all good things must end.”

Here’s to you Charlie and to your amazing career. Thanks for giving folks like us even more inspiration to “keep on supporting this thing we call Texas/Red dirt”. Cheers!
