Kane Brown's drummer, Kenny Dixon, 27, killed in car accident
The drummer for country music star Kane Brown was killed in a car accident on Saturday, the band confirmed.
Kenny Dixon, a longtime member of Brown's band, was from Dalton, Georgia. He was 27.
"It is with profound sadness and disbelief that we confirm we lost our drummer Kenny this weekend in a tragic car accident," the band said in a statement to Taste of Country and Atlanta station WSBTV.com on Sunday. "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."
It's unclear where the crash happened.
USA TODAY has reached out to Brown's reps for comment.
Brown posted his own tribute Sunday on Instagram, saying Dixon "will never be replaced."

"Love you so much dude!!!" the country star said. "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 🔥 I know u will be watching over us with that red neck accent that we all love."
Dixon and his fiancée, Sarah Hedrick, shared a son, Levi James, 3. Hedrick also posted a tribute Sunday to her "guardian angel."
"I'm at a loss of words" she wrote. "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. 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."
Just two days ago, Hedrick posted a black-and-white photo of the two of them, with the caption, "I can't wait to marry you @kenny_dixon23kb ! #November30 #mushypost"
