Kenny Chesney - Country Musician Tim Hensley Dead At 50

Kenny Chesney's former band member Tim Hensley has died at the age of 50.

Hensley, who spent 11 years as a key member of the country superstar's group, passed away in Nashville, Tennessee on Tuesday (30Apr13) after suffering liver failure. No further information about his death was available at the time Wenn went to press.

A talented singer and musician, Hensley recorded and performed with Patty Loveless and Ricky Skaggs, and also released his own solo album, 2008's Long Monday, which was co-produced by Chesney.

Hensley joined Skaggs' band in 1988 to play banjo before teaming up with Loveless a year later (89). He spent 10 years with her, appearing on albums When Fallen Angels Fly and Trouble With the Truth, but in 1999, Hensley left Loveless to join Chesney's group.

However, he declined to rejoin with the country superstar in 2011 when Chesney resumed touring after a year-long hiatus.
