Powers Booth who played Lamar Wyatt on Nashville, died on Sunday at the age of 68.
During the first two seasons of the show, Powers was a key character playing the father of Rayna Jaymes and former mayer of Nashville.
After the word spread of his passing, the cast quickly went on social media to share their thoughts.
At the end of a Nashville Season One party, when the great Powers Boothe started to sing "Honky Tonk Man" on @theryman Auditorium stage, I grabbed my phone as fast as I could. So glad I did. This is how I will remember this kind and charismatic man I was thrilled and honored to work with. I was a huge fan when we met. I became even more of one as, through his warmth and generosity, I got to know him a little better. What I'll remember most was his deep bond with, and his obvious love for, his wonderful wife and college sweetheart, Pamela. It's her that he's singing to in this clip. My heartfelt prayers and condolences go out to her and to their family. Rest In Peace, Powers. With your singular presence, you elevated every project you were ever a part of - most definitely including ours. We were blessed to have you in, and on, Nashville.
Truly shocked by the news that Powers Boothe has passed away. Such a talented, kind and inspiring man. A true gentleman and a friend.— Sam Palladio (@SamPalladio) May 15, 2017
Godspeed, Powers. I'll never forget the sight of you and beautiful Pamela, two stepping on the Ryman stage that day. 💛— Clare Bowen (@clarembee) May 15, 2017
