Another country music legend was just found dead, please keep his family in your prayers.
If you are a true music fan you know that legends aren’t only those that hit the top of the charts with their music. They are anyone who has helped pioneer any kind of music or artist.
This is the case for Moon Mullins who was in the radio industry for decades before his retirement, and now his death. Although he retired in 2014 he was one of the most well respected radio show hosts in music history.
For the last 10 years of his career, he co-hosted the morning show at WBKR with Chadwick Benefield. He was also inducted into the Country Radio Hall of Fame in 2009. According to Country Music Nation it was “because of his incredible contribution to growing the country music genre and for his incredible humor, personality, and passion for his work.”
Anyone that knew Mullins or knew of him could say that statement was 100% true. He had one of the funniest and best personalities which was only a plus to the love that he had for his career.
WBKR released a statement saying that Mullins’ death was somewhat expected. Apparently he has had a “variety of health problems” since his retirement. His grandson, Brent Ray Byrum, shared about them when he announced that his grandfather had passed away.
“My beloved grandfather passed away last night,” he wrote, according to All Access. “I will see you up there come day. Lil then, look down on and guide me to be a great a [sic] man as you were. Love you dearly.”
Mullins wasn’t just known in one place either. He was the Program Director in several different markets including Wichita, Louisville, Kansas City, and New York.”He started out his career in Denver City, Texas and moved to Lubbock, Texas, then Kansas City.”
As of now, no arrangements have been released for the funeral. Please continue to pray for his family during this heartbreaking time.
