The Tennessean's Peter Cooper has just confirmed this via a post on Tune In Music City, reporting Owsley's death as an apparent suicide. In addition to his solo work, Owsley was a member of The Semantics, worked with Shania Twain and was a longtime guitarist for Amy Grant. Grant had the following to say on her website:
We are all reeling today from the news of Will Owsley’s death yesterday. So many of us in Nashville worked with Will, lived with him on the road, celebrated his talents and knew his anguish. Please join us in praying for his family and children.
