David Crosby of Crosby, Stills & Nash passes away at 81; country music artists pay homage

Rock legend, David Crosby, passed away this week at the age of 81. He was a singer-songwriter-guitarist and a founding member of two popular 1960 rock bands, the Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash.

During their career as a band, they had 2 Grammy Awards with 4 nominations and were also inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Legend Bob Dylan described Crosby as “a colorful and unpredictable character...had a beautiful voice - an architect of harmony.”

The country music industry quickly took to social media to honor the late legend.
