The SAG-AFTRA Nashville Local remembers the life of multi-faceted entertainer Lari White, who died Jan. 23 after a short battle with cancer. She was 52.
As a Grammy-winning songwriter, White’s songs were recorded by artists like Tammy Wynette, Sarah Buxton and Pat Green. Besides being a country music producer and singing with artists like Rodney Crowell, White also was an accomplished artist in her own right — boasting a string of hits in the ‘90s — as well as acting on Broadway and in movies like Castaway with Tom Hanks.
White was a member of the Nashville local for nearly thirty years. Friends remember her as a passionate advocate for humanitarian causes in the Nashville community. She is survived by her husband, Chuck Cannon, and children M’Kenzy Rayne, Kyra and Jaxon.
