Athens singer-songwriter Vic Chesnutt has died, his record label has confirmed.
"In the few short years that we knew him personally, Vic transformed our sense of what true character, grace and determination are all about. Our grief is inexpressible and Vic's absence unfathomable," said Constellation records founders Ian Ilavsky and Don Wilkie in a statement released Friday night. "We will make more information available according to the wishes of Vic's family and friends."
Chesnutt, 45, was partially paralyzed and has used a wheelchair since age 18, when he was involved in a car accident. He started writing songs as a child and released his debut album, "Little," in 1990. R.E.M. singer Michael Stipe was the record's producer.
