Episode Summary

Country's Most Shocking 2
Sometimes, grief finds its way into music. That's the case with "Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue," a passionate song written by Toby Keith after his father was killed in a highway hit-and-run. For Loretta Lynn, the untimely death of her son Jack still leaves questions unanswered. Keith Whitley, known for modern classics like "When You Say Nothing at All" and "I'm No Stranger to the Rain," was less fortunate. He succumbed to alcohol poisoning in 1989. Others, like Amie Comeaux -- a promising young singer who was killed in a 1997 car accident -- were taken before reaching their full potential. A drug-fueled lifestyle can take its toll as well, as it did with Steve Earle (who survived) and Gram Parsons (who didn't). Meanwhile, serious health scares threatened to end the careers of Naomi Judd and Chris LeDoux, and their recoveries have been called "miraculous" by some. Of course, contemporary artists have faced hard times too, including Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney's horsenapping incident, Carlene Carter's heroin addiction and Trace Adkins' numerous brushes with death.moreless
