American country-western singer and songwriter who had his first top-ten hit in 1973. He was from a musical family; among his relatives were Jimmy and Dan Seals. After his mother taught him how to play guitar, Duncan joined Norman Petty's group in New Mexico in 1959 for three years. Moving to Nashville, he held several odd jobs before appearing on Ralph Emery's television show in 1966. He was seen there by Columbia Records producer Don Law, who signed him to work with producer Frank Jones. His first single, "Hard Luck Joe," made it to the Top 60 in 1967. The following year, his single "To My Sorrow" hit the Top 50. Later in 1968, he had his first Top 20 hit with "Jackson Ain't a Very Big Town," a duet with June Stearns.

After going thru a slump, 1970-1974, he recorded songs with the Gatlin Brothers and Janie Fricke before having a No.1 hit in 1976. His career waned again 1980-1981, all but disappearing from the charts, when he made a minor comeback in 1986 with two singles.

The country western singer died August 14, 2006 in Ft. Worth, TX at age 67 of a heart attack.
