Red Dirt singer-songwriter Charlie Robison has announced his retirement from performing, citing complications from surgery earlier this year via a post on his Facebook page Monday night.
“[A]t 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 stage and studio,” the 54-year-old wrote. A previous post on Robison’s Instagram account indicates that the surgery was done on his throat and took place on January 3rd.
