Rising country singer Kylie Rae Harris was killed in a three-vehicle crash in northern New Mexico on Wednesday night.
The 30-year-old singer was scheduled to play in Taos on Thursday night, but died in the crash, along with another driver, a 16-year-old girl. A third driver survived the crash, according to The Associated Press.
Harris’ publicist confirmed the death to Billboard.com:
Harris is survived by a 6-year-old daughter, to whom she dedicated her last single, “Twenty Years From Now.”
Originally from Wylie, Texas, Harris grew up wanting a country music career from an early age, even writing her first song at the age of 14, according to SavingCountryMusic.com.
Harris’ last known statement was a tweet she posted Wednesday afternoon.
