Gates Nichols, the bass player for county music group Confederate Railroad, passed away last week from Pancreatic Cancer. Confederate Railroad has had several huge country music hits over the past decade. Gary was a good musician and he will be truly missed. A post on the band’s website, www.confederaterailroad.net , states that fans can make a donation to a scholarship fund in his memory.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Nichols family as they go through this time of grief.
