Gibson, Donald Eugene
▪ 2004
“Don” 
      American singer-songwriter (b. April 3, 1928, Shelby, N.C.—d. Nov. 17, 2003, Nashville, Tenn.), was one of the creators of the “Nashville sound” and, because of his usually unhappy love songs, became known as the “sad poet.” Three of his songs—“Sweet Dreams,” “Oh Lonesome Me,” and “I Can't Stop Loving You,” the last two of which were written on the same day in 1957—came to be among country music's most popular standards, and “I Can't Stop Loving You” was recorded by more than 700 performers.
