Monday 2pm ET: Feature Artist – Eddie Rabbitt

Edward Thomas Rabbitt (November 27, 1941 – May 7, 1998) was an American singer and songwriter. His career began as a songwriter in the late 1960s, springboarding to a recording career after composing hits such as “Kentucky Rain” for Elvis Presley in 1970 and “Pure Love” for Ronnie Milsap in 1974. Later in the 1970s, Rabbitt helped to develop the crossover-influenced sound of country music prevalent in the 1980s with such hits as “Suspicions” and “Every Which Way but Loose” (the theme from the film of the same title). His duets “Both to Each Other (Friends and Lovers)” and “You and I”, with Juice Newton and Crystal Gayle, respectively, later appeared on the soap operas Days of Our Lives and All My Children.

Rabbitt died on May 7, 1998, in Nashville from lung cancer at the age of 56. He had been diagnosed with the disease in March 1997 and had received radiation treatment and surgery to remove part of one lung. His body was interred at Calvary Cemetery in Nashville following a private burial on May 8, 1998.

No media outlets reported the death until after the burial at the family’s request. The news came as a surprise to many in Nashville, including the performer’s agent, who “had no idea Eddie was terminal” and had talked to him often, remarking that Rabbitt “was always upbeat and cheerful” in the final months of his life. Although he was widely believed to have been born in 1944 (this year can still be found in older publications and texts), at the time of his death, he was revealed to have been born in 1941.
