“Taylor Dee was the real deal — a true talent with a heart and passion not only for her music but for people,” said the president of the Texas Country Music Association, Linda Wilson, in a statement confirming the news. 

“In every performance, her talent was evident, but more importantly she allowed her fans to know her heart,” Wilson continued. “She will be missed tremendously.”

The mom of two — who was not wearing a seatbelt — was ejected from the vehicle. 

A second passenger who was wearing a seatbelt suffered a broken toe, according to Euless Police Sgt. Scott Peterson.
