TAOS, N.M. (CelebrityAccess) — Country music singer-songwriter Kylie Rae Harris was killed in a car accident in New Mexico on Wednesday night.
According to the Associated Press, the Taos County Sheriff’s Office reported that two drivers, — a 30-year-old woman and a 16-year-old girl — were killed, while a third driver escaped injury in a three-car accident on Wednesday night.
The Sheriff’s Office says alcohol is suspected as being a factor in the crash but did not identify who was alleged to have been under the influence, the Associated Press reported.
A statement from Harris’s publicist provided to the Tennessean said:
“We are heartbroken to confirm that Kylie Rae Harris passed away in a car accident last night. (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.”
Harris was in New Mexico for a performance at Michael Hearne’s Big Barn Dance Music Festival on Thursday night, with additional shows and festival dates across Texas scheduled through September and October.
Harris, who was featured in the documentary series Troubadours, released her most recent EP, “Kylie Rae Harris” in March.
According to the Tennessean, she is survived by a six-year-old daughter.
