Beloved Country Star Dies Suddenly – Fans Shocked

Another one has returned home after accomplishing a successful career and sharing her music with the world. Famed Bonnie Brown has passed away, she was 77 years old.


From Taste of Country:

Brown was the sister of country legend Jim Ed Brown, who died after a battle with cancer in June of 2015. Just months after that, she was diagnosed with a different form of lung cancer. She passed away on Saturday (July 16) at Baptist Health Medical Center in Little Rock, Ark., according to Nashville’s Tennessean newspaper.

The news comes just weeks after Brown’s family asked for prayers via Facebook, revealing the singer was in critical care after experiencing complications from a blood clot.

Along with Jim Ed Brown and her sister Maxine, Brown was a member of the Browns. The trio rose to fame in the 1950s, releasing a string of hit singles that included “Here Today and Gone Tomorrow,” “I Take the Chance,” “Just as Long as You Love Me,” “Money,” “I Heard the Bluebirds Sing,” “Would You Care” and “Beyond the Shadow,” as well as their biggest hit, 1959′s “The Three Bells,” which reached No. 1 in both country and pop. The Browns joined the Grand Ole Opry in 1963, but by 1967 Bonnie and Maxine had decided to retire, and Jim Ed Brown became a solo act.

Sending prayers to her family and friends affected by her loss. RIP.
