Country singer Gary Stewart was found dead at his home in Fort Pierce, Kentucky, on Tuesday (16DEC03) - from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The singer-songwriter, 58, was popular in the 1970s with such honky-tonk hits as DRINKIN' THING and SHE'S ACTIN' SINGLE (I'M DRINKIN' DOUBLES).

Stewart's wife of 43 years, MARY LOU STEWART, died just last month (NOV03), promoting him to cancel his last scheduled concert date - 29 November at BILLY BOB'S TEXAS in Fort Worth, Texas.
