Twenty-four years ago today, on Sept. 4, 1991, the country music community was in mourning. It was on this day that Dottie West passed away, from injuries sustained in a car crash. West was 58 years old at the time of her death.
Country music has seen a number of its most talented artists pass away this year, from singers who influenced the direction of the genre from its onset to artists who were influential in bringing country to the masses up to the point of their passing.
After the news of country singer Lynn Anderson's death broke on Friday (July 31), numerous country music peers sent their condolences, but Tim McGraw went one step further and paid musical tribute to Anderson before a show in Cleveland, Ohio, that night.
