“This is how I will remember this kind and charismatic man I was thrilled and honored to work with,” wrote Charles on his Instagram page alongside a video of Powers singing “Honky Tonk Man” on the Ryman Auditorium stage during a “Nashville” season one party. “I was a huge fan when we met. I became even more of one as, through his warmth and generosity, I got to know him a little better. What I’ll remember most was his deep bond with, and his obvious love for, his wonderful wife and college sweetheart, Pamela. It’s her that he’s singing to in this clip. My heartfelt prayers and condolences go out to her and to their family.”

Charles went on to talk about Powers’ impact on him and the entire “Nashville” cast.

“Rest In Peace, Powers,” he wrote. “With your singular presence, you elevated every project you were ever a part of – most definitely including ours. We were blessed to have you in, and on, Nashville.”
