48 Hours Mystery Looks At Music Row Murder

May 10, 2006 — Lee Ann Womack and Darryl Worley will be discussing the life and untimely death of rising Nashville songwriter and session musician Randy Hardison on CBS' 48 Hours Mystery on Saturday, May 13. In addition to his session work as a drummer, Hardison penned cuts for the likes of Garth Brooks, Lee Ann and Darryl. "Randy introduced me to a lot of other singer/songwriters and taught me a lot about writing," Lee Ann tells correspondent Peter Van Sant. Hardison died June 4, 2002, from head injuries sustained in an attack in front of his Nashville apartment complex. The murderer, Ronnie Skipper, was eventually arrested and charged with second-degree murder. In the end, a jury found him guilty of reckless homicide and aggravated assault, crimes for which he served seven months in prison.
