Michael David Fuller was a country music singer-songwriter from America. Popular by his professional name, Blaze Foley, he was also a poet and artist. An Arkansas native, he was raised in Texas and sang in a gospel band with most members of his family. He was given the nickname “Deputy Dog” quite early in his career. In the mid-1970s, he resided in a small artistic community in Georgia. It was there that he met Sybil Rosen. After they left the community together, Foley travelled to various parts of US in order to establish himself in the music industry. His relationship with Rosen eventually ended right after he had finished writing his most popular song, ‘If I Could Only Fly’. In the next few years, he penned memorable tracks like ‘Clay Pigeons’, ‘Ride in Your Big Cadillac’, and ‘Wouldn’t That Be Nice’. Foley was killed in 1989 by the son of a friend over a monetary dispute. Considered to be a quintessential Americana artist, he was the subject of the 2018 biographical drama, ‘Blaze’.
