Grammy winner JJ Cale, best known for his hit songs with Eric Clapton and Lynyrd  Skynyrd, has died. He was 74.

Cale's manager Mike Kappus told the Associated Press the singer/songwriter died Friday night of a heart attack at Scripps Hospital in La Jolla.

The Oklahoma City native's album with Eric Clapton, "The Road to Escondido," won a Grammy for Best Contemporary Blues Album in 2007.
