The rising country star was involved in a fatal multi-car collision
Rising country singer Kylie Rae Harris died in a multi-car crash in New Mexico on Wednesday. According to a police report to the Associated Press, two of the three people involved in the accident have passed, including 30-year-old Harris and a 16-year-old girl.
Harris is survived by her 6-year-old daughter Corbie, whom her most recent song ‘Twenty Years From Now” is dedicated to. Following the news of Harris’ departure, a GoFundMe page started to cover costs and to build a personal account for Corbie. The page has already received over $35,000 in donations to alleviate financial hardships on Harris’ family.
In a statement with Billboard Harris’ publicist said “we are heartbroken to confirm that Kylie Rae Harris passed away in a car accident last night…everyone that knew Kylie knew how much she loved her family, and beyond that, how much she loved music.”
Fellow county singer Maren Morris, as well as other supporters, have taken to social media to tribute the late Harris.
“The best tribute to her unmatched enthusiasm for both [her family and music] is to spread as much love as you can today, and listen to music that fully inspires you,” said her publicist.
The Associated Press said alcohol may have played a role in the collision, but has not followed up on the statements.
