Famous Texas musician and songwriter for a quarter century has shocked and saddened fans on Monday, September 24. Charlie Robison has decided to call it quits and will no longer pursue his music career following complications from surgery that have left him unable to sing.
Robison announced that he has decided to retire on his social media account on Monday, according to reports.
"Hey amigos,Charlie here. I’m sure you’ve all been wondering where I’ve been," his announcement began. "Well,at the beginning of this year I underwent a surgical procedure that because of complications left me with the permanent inability to sing."
"Therefore,with a very heavy heart I am officially retiring from the the stage and studio. Gonna keep it short but just wanted y’all to hear it from me. It’s been an amazing ride and I cannot tell you all what the last 25 years has meant to me. I was looking forward to another 25 but as they say “s*** happens," he continued.
In the late 1980s, Robison was pursuing a football career when, sadly, he had an injury that left him unable to play. Later, he moved to Austin, Texas where he played in multiple bans like "Millionaire Playboys," and "Chaparral." While he never made the Top 25 singles list, he did help many performers and songwriters in finding success of their own. He earned a reputation for himself.
"I thank you all for everything you’ve given me, and I hope I was able to give you a fraction of the happiness you gave me," Robison wrote. "It was a hell of a ride but as they say all good things must end. Keep on supporting this thing we call Texas/Red dirt and hopefully we’ll all get to have a cocktail or two and talk about the good ol days. Until then,Buenos Noches. It’s been fun. Love each and every one of y’all. C"
