  • Sonny James
  • Holly Dunn who lost a battle to cancer
  • Steve Young, he wrote “Seven Bridges Road”
  • Mark Gray from the group Exile
  • Jean Shepard
  • Leon Russell
  • Jake Bentley…yes I included Dierks’ beloved pet who he sang about in “Can’t be Replaced”
  • Joey Feek from Joey and Rory who lost her fight with cervical cancer
