1 min read

Ain’t No Sunshine by Bill Withers is today’s featured song.

On this day in 2020, 81-year-old soul troubadour Bill Withers died from heart complications. A coal miner’s son from West Virginia, Withers began singing and writing songs while in the US Navy and released his first album Just As I Am in 1971 at the age of 33. His debut single “Ain’t No Sunshine” went gold in the US but was surpassed by “Lean On Me,” an anthem of togetherness that became his only No.1 record. Withers also scored hits with “Use Me,” “Lovely Day,” and “Just The Two Of Us.” His ballad ‘Ain’t No Sunshine’, earned him his first Grammy award.
