The Canadian country music scene was shocked by the sudden death of Cree singer/songwriter Shane Yellowbird, whose childhood dreams of being a rodeo cowboy turned to performing when he began singing to help his stutter. He was 42.

An outpouring of praise for Yellowbird came from country music performers, fans and others across Canada. Yellowbird died April 25.

“It’s a sad day in the Canadian country music world as we’ve learned that Cree country singer Shane Yellowbird has passed away at the age of 42,” Pure Country 93 radio station in London, Ontario, posted to Instagram.
