Texas singer-songwriter Charlie Robison has announced his retirement from music due to medical complications.

You may remember him as a judge on the first season of Nashville Star in 2003; that season, Buddy Jewell won, while Miranda Lambert placed third.

Kenny Chesney recorded Robison’s song “El Cerrito Place,” earning a Top 10 single.

Garth Brooks revealed on Monday during his “Studio G” Facebook Live that America’s Got Talent contestant Michael Ketterer will not be performing at his Notre Dame show.

Garth wrote a new song just for Ketterer to sing on AGT.

But a day after the performance, Ketterer was arrested in Hollywood and charged with domestic violence.

Garth said that he is making his full demo of “Courage of Love” available as part of his as-yet-untitled upcoming studio album and it will be a longer, more complete version than what we saw on AGT.
