Terry Cagle Obituary – Cause of Death: Terry Cagle, drummer for the legendary Cate Brothers Band dies at 72.
An online obituary on Sunday, February 12, 2023, announced the passing of Terry Cagle at the age of 72. However, his cause of death was not disclosed.
Ralph Terry Cagle was born in Helena, Phillips County, Arkansas, in 1950. He grew up in Turkey Scratch, Arkansas.
Cagle is a self-taught drummer who began working as a professional musician at age fifteen. In 1966 Cagle’s uncle, Levon Helm, recruited him as the drummer for the Del-Reys, a group which later became the Cate Brothers.
The Cate Brothers are singer-songwriter-musician duo of twin brothers from Fayetteville, Arkansas, Earl and Ernest “Ernie” Cate (born December 26, 1942).
In the mid-1960s, they became performers of country soul music at clubs and dances in Arkansas and elsewhere in the mid-South of the United States. Both brothers are singers, with Earl playing guitar and Ernie playing piano. They were recording artists during the mid- to late-1970s and again from the mid-1990s through the first decade of the 2000s.
