Rest in peace kind sir!

I am sorry for the families loss. Earl and I are distant cousins. My great grandmother was a Conley. Oma Conley. I wish I could of met Earl I loved his music. Again my condolences to the family.

We have a local radio station here in Jackson, MS called The Legend that plays the best of the best from decades past. Anytime I hear an Earl Thomas Conley song it takes me right back to where I was during the time it was released and played so much on country radio. He had a true gift for telling a story through his music that spoke to the heart. His beautiful soul shined through his music. My heart breaks for the suffering he endured in his later years and for his family who endured...

As a country radio dj for WXCI Detroit and many other stations since 1967 only 4 country singers had me in awe; Waylon, George Jones Vern Gosdin and Earl. Deepest condolences to his family and friends. Wish i had met Earl before the terrible disease hurt him so bad or been able to tell him how much respect all us dj's had for his amazing talent. We can't take health for granted.....tell everybody you know how much you love them and treat them as if it'll be the last time you see them or they...

My deepest condolences to Earls family. I was a fan in the 80's 90's and never missed a Bay Area show. Earl was kind enough to let us hang out, be back stage and meet many other Country music legends. I'm so sad. Sending love from Healdsburg Ca

Love him and his music! Love seeing him in concerts,he was always such an Awesome man!! He will TRULY be MISSED!

The best Country Music performer of my lifetime(I am 53), bar none. For every $1 we gave him as fans, he gave us $5 in return.

So long ol' son. Missed?.. yes. Forgotten?...not in my lifetime. God's speed

One of the best entertainers Ive ever had the pleasure of hearing. Im very sorry to hear of his passing. God Bless
