    I don't really know what to say to that other than I was extremely blessed with an exceptionally healthy child, the thought of losing her, well, it's just something I don't think I could endure.

    So good on him...take the rest of your life to enjoy your family and the fruits of your labor.

    I'm sure he'll be back when life settles down for him, he sure is a smooth singer though, yeah I've got his Xmas album.

    Quitting the music BUSINESS is different than quitting music.

    (I quit the music business 20 years ago when I realized I had no talent or charisma... but I still play!)

    Man I don't care who you are, that's a rough mountain of challenges right there.

    A terrible shame.

    I guess that is what we would all do in a similar situation.

    Good for him. He has already accomplished more before quitting, than most artists do in decades.

    His covers are good. His original songs are even better. He’s created a musical legacy already, that will last. Everything, Home, Just haven’t met you yet, and Hollywood are awesome tunes.. and those are his only main ones im aware of.

    He’s in his 40s already. Unlikely he will have more pop radio hits, in today’s music climate. It’s a good time for him to stop, if he chooses.

    If he wants to come back later, that’s cool too. His genre is one that he can do until he’s 70, easily. Ages well.

    There are obviously things more important than a career.

    He's fortunate to be able to do so financially. Nothing is guaranteed in life, he's got tons of money and the time to be with his kids while they grow up. I always admired Garth Brooks stepping away to do the same thing.

    As someone with a child with a disability I fully understand ! If I were financially able to stop working and spend all my time with my son I would be retired instantly ......

    Who could blame him.
    I give him kudos to the max. He's a huge talent, very wealthy, and yet, his values are right where they should be.


    Many could learn a thing or two from this man.

    His management company is denying that he is quitting. He may have commitments that he cannot break. Whatever, I sympathize with any parent who has a child with any debilitating or life threatening medical condition.

    Health problems with kids are a tough burden for parents. I wish them all well.

    If he does have commitments, it’s best to let him out of them. Chaining someone (especially a celebrity with some leverage) to doing something their heart isn’t in, leads to music like this.
