Peter Cooper, an award-successful state new music journalist and Grammy-nominated musician, died Tuesday in Nashville, Tennessee, right after suffering a head injury from a fall. He was 52.

A native of South Carolina, Cooper moved to Nashville in the calendar year 2000, signing up for The Tennessean as a music author. He before long recognized himself as a brilliant, unmistakable voice in region audio criticism, filling his tales with attained perception, mild wit and a very well-positioned baseball reference.

All through his 15-yr tenure, whether or not he was masking the dying of George Jones or the rise of Taylor Swift, Cooper’s byline was the a single innumerable viewers seemed for upon buying up the day’s paper.

That bundled the legends he wrote about. Kris Kristofferson once explained he “looks at the environment with an artist’s eye, and a human coronary heart and soul,” while Hank Williams Jr. basically referred to as him “one hell of a author.”
