Swamp Rock Icon Tony Joe White Dead at 75

Gravelly-voiced singer known for "Rainy Night in Georgia" and "Polk Salad Annie" had his songs covered by Elvis Presley, Tina Turner, Waylon Jennings

A solo artist who signed to Nashville's Monument Records in 1967, White's distinctively gritty vocals and vivid storytelling were present right through to his most recent album, the blues-based Bad Mouthin', released last month on Yep Roc Records.

In his five decades as a singer-songwriter, White was best known for his swamp rock style mixing blues, country and rock 'n' roll, which earned him the nickname the Swamp Fox especially with his fans overseas.

"The songwriting's been the whole thing that has sustained me," White told The Tennessean in 1983. "Through my whole career, that has kept me going ... but I love to perform even more than I love to write."
