We are so very sad about Tom's passing.
It turns out that it wasn't actually the cancer that took him:
Here is the Facebook post a little while ago from his wife Melanie:
"My sweet husband, Tom Roady, died last night. He was doing what he loved being on the road with Ricky Scaggs. Tom went to sleep on the tour bus heading to South Carolina and passed peacefully in his sleep. His big beautiful heart gave out in the end, not the cancer."
Nashville and the music world has lost The Mayor.
Rest In Peace, Yer Honor.
