Country Singer Justin Carter Dies After Accidental Shooting on Music Video Set Texas country music upstart Justin Carter has died from a gunshot wound, in an accident that took place while a gun was being as a prop for a music video being filmed in his apartment, according to reports out of Houston. 

On April 9th, 1998, on his 45th birthday, Ketchum was diagnosed with acute transverse myelitis, a neurological disorder related to multiple sclerosis, which causes an enlargement of the base of the spinal cord. After months of physical therapy, Ketchum was once again able to walk, play guitar and perform live. His most recent album, I’m the Troubadour, was released in 2014.

A native of Greenwich, New York, Ketchum, then billed as Hal Michael Ketchum, moved to Austin, Texas, in 1981, where he would record his first LP, Threadbare Alibis, which led to a publishing deal and a move to Nashville. Ketchum’s 1991 debut LP for Curb Records, Past the Point of Rescue, sold in excess of 600,000 copies, earning him a gold record. All four singles released from it reached country’s Top 20, including a cover of the Vogues’ 1965 hit “Five O’Clock World,” written by Nashville songwriter-producer Allen Reynolds. The 1992 follow-up album, Sure Love, scored three Top Tens, including the Number Two single “Mama Knows the Highway.” This was followed two years later by the critically lauded Every Little Word, with the Top Ten ballad “Stay Forever.”

Ketchum, now 66, relocated to Texas after the release of his final Curb album, Father Time, in 2008. In October 2018, he made his final live concert appearance at the legendary Gruene Hall in New Braunfels, Texas, where he often performed.
