Making his name with a string of hits throughout the '70s, country musician Tommy Overstreet, or "T.O.", as many called him, tragically passed away, November 2nd, in his Oregon home.

Born in Oklahoma City, Overstreet was raised in both Houston and Abiliene, Texas before he set his sights on a career as a recording artist. Country music had largely influenced his childhood with his cousin "Uncle" Gene Austin becoming a star during the '20s. 

When Overstreet was just 17, he began signing on Slim Willet's television show and later was hired on as manager of Dot Records in Nashville. At that point, he made the decision to pursue a recording career. Nearly immediately following his debut, he would see his songs storm the charts with his most notable single "Heaven Is My Woman's Love" coming in at No. 3 on the US Country chart. 

A career spanning nearly two decades would follow Overstreet with strings of charted songs and performances dotting the map as he toured the country throughout the '70s and '80s until he retired in 1986. 

Tommy Overstreet passed away at his home in the suburbs of Portland, OR following a series of ailments that occurred over the last few years. 

Watch the video below of his biggest hit, "Heaven Is My Woman's Love" in remembrance of a legend lost. 

R.I.P. Tommy Overstreet

LYRICS BELOW

Heaven is my woman’s love gently rising with the sun
She gives me cause to face the day and gives me joy when day is done
Heaven is my woman’s love heaven is the way I live
She gives me all the love she can and then somehow finds more to give

And when I see her in the morning light
I feel the same as in the dark of night
She is my everything that I’m proud of
The heaven of my woman’s love

Heaven is my woman’s love gently reaching out for me
All she wants is what I am searching not for what I’ll be

Heaven is my woman’s love happiness is what she gives
As long as she’s with me I’ll find heaven every day I live

And when I see her in the morning light
I feel the same as in the dark of night
She is my everything that I’m proud of
The heaven of my woman’s love

Heaven is my woman’s love; heaven is my woman’s love
Heaven is my woman’s love; heaven is my woman’s love
Heaven is my woman’s love; heaven is my woman’s love
Heaven is my woman’s love; heaven is my woman’s love
