Kane Brown’s drummer, Kenny Dixon, has died, according to social media reports.

His fiancée, Sarah Hedrick, shared the devastating news via Instagram on Sunday (Oct. 13). According to her recent social posts, she shared a young son with Dixon. She and Dixon were planning to get married in the near future.

“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,” she wrote. “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.”

Sean Fuller, who plays drums for Florida Georgia Line, responded to the news of Dixon’s death via social media in an emotional video.

“I don’t even know what to say,” Fuller began. “I’m blown away. Heartbroken. Anytime something like this happens, it just puts so much into perspective of how little time we have on this Earth and that we’re not promised tomorrow. My heart really hurts for Sarah and Levi. It hurts for all of the band members of Kane Brown and their road family. Guys, you’re in my prayers…”

Dixon was on tour with Kane Brown and often shared photos from the road on his Instagram.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.

UPDATE: Kane Brown responded to Dixon’s passing on Instagram, writing, “Love you so much dude!!! You started all of this with me from the start in 2015 when no body else believed we would make it out of Chattanooga playing for 500 people and your last show was in a Fn Stadium my guy ?
