A masterful multi-instrumentalist who worked onstage and in the studio with artists including Brenda Lee, The Oak Ridge Boys, Waylon Jennings, Ronnie Milsap, George Strait and Alabama (he played on the latter band’s top-charting single, “The Closer You Get”), William Adair was also a broadcast music producer who won more than 150 awards for composing and arranging advertisements.

Bobbe Adair’s husband William Adair died in February 2014 of melanoma cancer at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, aged 66.
