Best known as one half of the popular duo Bud & Travis with partner Bud Dashiell, Edmonson had been in ill health for some time. In addition to his concert and recording work with Dashiell, he was a member of The Gateway Singers as well as a gifted and successful solo artist in his native Arizona. Dashiell passed away in 1989.
