Singer Daron Norwood dead at 49

FOX 34 received word Thursday morning that Daron Norwood has died. He was found dead in his Hereford apartment.

The Lubbock-born country music singer produced two albums in the early 90s. A number of hits made the Top 40, including "Cowboys Don't Cry", "If I Ever Love Again" and "If It Wasn't For Her, I Wouldn't Have You".

Many thought he was on the brink of becoming a huge star when he left the music business in 1995. He told the Lubbock A-J he was battling severe alcoholism. He'd played some small gigls in Lubbock just this year.

Investigators say foul play is not suspected. A cause of death hasn't yet been determined. Norwood was 49.
