September 5, 2019

(KNX) - Thirty-year-old rising country singing sensation, Kylie Rae Harris died in a northern New Mexico car wreck Wednesday night, a representative for the artist said.

A Texas native, Harris was scheduled to perform Thursday at a music festival in Taos, New Mexico.

The Associated Press reports that an unidentified 16-year-old was also killed in the three-vehicle crash. 

A third driver escaped injury from the accident. Police suspect alcohol was a factor. 

“We are heartbroken to confirm that Kylie Rae Harris passed away in a car accident last night,” Harris’ publicist says in a statement to Billboard. “We have no further details to share, and ask for privacy for her family at this time. Everyone that knew Kylie knew how much she loved her family and, beyond that, how much she loved music. The best tribute to her unmatched enthusiasm for both is to spread as much love as you can today, and listen to music that fully inspires you.”
