Country music fans are mourning the loss of Kenny Dixon, drummer in Kane Brown’s band, who passed away on Saturday in a car accident. He was 27.
According to Atlanta’s WSB News, the band issued a statement confirming Dixon’s death.
“It is with profound sadness and disbelief that we confirm we lost our drummer Kenny this weekend in a tragic car accident,” reads the statement. “Kenny was a member of our family from the very beginning, and our hearts are with his fiancée Sarah, his son and everyone who knew and loved him. He was truly one of the greatest and kindest people on and off stage we’ve ever known.”
Dixon was to have married his fiancée Sarah Hendrick on November 30; she, too, confirmed the musician’s death on Instagram on Sunday.

I’m at a loss of words. I don’t even know how to write this or ever thought I would have to. Kenny passed away last night in a car accident. I know I have to be strong for Levi and God is gonna pull us through this. We have a forever guardian angel watching above us now. Please keep Levi, my family, and Kenny’s family in your prayers.
The singer tweeted on Tuesday that his upcoming sold-out show at the Staples Center would be rescheduled in light of his drummer’s death.
Tickets originally purchased for the October 18 concert will be honoured on the rescheduled date of January 9, 2020.
