Billboard confirmed the tragic news with a statement from Kane’s representatives. “It is with profound sadness and disbelief that we confirm we lost our drummer Kenny this weekend in a tragic car accident,” it read. “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.”
Kane also spoke out about his loss in an Instagram tribute to his bandmate.
“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,” he wrote. “I know u will be watching over us with that red neck accent that we all love and you will never be replaced bro!!! I promise u that!!”
Kenny is survived by his fiancée Sarah and their young son, Levi. She also shared the heartbreaking news on social media, posting a collage of photos of their family.
“I’m at a loss of words. I don’t even know how to write this or ever thought I would have to,” she said. “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.”
Sarah, Levi, and all of Kenny’s loved ones are in our thoughts.
