Chris Daughtry is mourning the sudden loss of his 25-year-old daughter, Hannah.
On Saturday afternoon (Nov. 13), just one day after the loss of his daughter, the Daughtry frontman penned a heartfelt tribute to his late daughter, who was found dead in her Nashville home on Friday evening (Nov. 12).
“I am still processing the last 24 hours. I am absolutely devastated and heartbroken,” Daughtry shared in a heartfelt post on Instagram. “I just recently lost my mother to cancer, but I was blessed with the chance to say goodbye, and I was processing it privately.”
“We never got to say goodbye to our precious Hannah, and it’s another huge hit to our family,” the rock frontman continued. “Thank you all for your kind words and condolences. They are truly felt and appreciated. I am now taking time to be present with my family as we attempt to heal from this devastating loss. Hannah, I love you. I miss you. I wish I could hold you. This hurts so deeply 💔💔💔”
Daughtry’s wife Deanna also penned a heartfelt message to their late daughter.
“My firstborn. I love you endlessly Hannah,” Deanna wrote on Instagram. “Our family would like to thank you all for the outpouring of love as we grieve the loss of our daughter Hannah. We are awaiting the autopsy results to determine how Hannah sustained the injuries that caused her death. Our hearts are broken.”
The posts come after the rock frontman abruptly postponed his tour after the tragic loss of his 25-year-old daughter who was found dead in her Nashville home on Friday evening (Nov. 12) by the Nashville Police Department, according to a statement from the singer.
“Due to the unexpected death of Chris and Deanna Daughtry’s daughter, Hannah, all currently scheduled shows for the coming week for Daughtry have been postponed,” the “Heavy Is The Crown” singer shared on Instagram. “The Daughtry family thanks you for your understanding and respectfully asks for privacy during this very difficult time.”
No cause of death was revealed at the time of the announcement on social media, however, his statement mentioned, “Further details will be made available at a later date. The investigation into this tragic death is still ongoing.”
Earlier this month, prior to the tragic passing of Daughtry’s daughter, the band kicked off their tour on Nov. 3. The group were set to perform on The Dearly Beloved Tour on Friday evening (Nov. 12) in Atlantic City, New Jersey, however, he did not appear due to the tragic loss of his daughter.
