In 2003, country singer Buddy Jewell made national headlines when he won the very first season of the singing competition series Nashville Star. Since beating out Miranda Lambert (she placed third), Jewell has released several albums under Columbia Records, Diamond Dust Records, Lamon Records, and BAM and Pangea Records.

While he won the competition over 15 years ago, Jewell has developed and kept a solid fan base, who look forward to his live streams every Tuesday, which the singer calls “Tuesday’s Tune.” Unfortunately, he had to cancel this week’s live stream because of a previous announcement about his mom.

On Saturday morning (May 26), Jewell shared to his thousands of Facebook fans some very sad news. His mother had passed away.

My sweet mother went home to be with Jesus this morning. Please keep our family in your prayers.
