Billboard is reporting on the autopsy of Country music songwriter Tom T. Hall died in August of last year at 85.  Officials in Williamson County have officially ruled suicide as his cause of death. Tom T. Hall, a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame and the singer-songwriter behind songs such as Jeannie C. Riley’s “Harper Valley P.T.A.” and his own “I Love,” died by suicide, says the Williamson County Medical Examiner’s report.

The cause of death was first reported Wednesday by the Saving Country Music website and was made official today. When Hall’s son Dean announced his father’s passing a cause of death wasn’t mentioned. RIP Tom.
