Following the death of his second-born daughter, Randy released a heartbreaking statement to radio station 93Q in Houston.

“Good morning,” starts Randy. “Rumer passed away last night. She died after a week long battle with a very rare condition. She died in our arms and in no pain. She was absolutely beautiful in every way. Her brain however was very sick. I’m sure you all have many questions and we have all the answers the doctors gave us. We can share the story with you. It’s quite an extraordinary one. A memorial will be planned soon. We love you.”

In light of Rumer’s death, the Randy Rogers Band has canceled its upcoming Friday show. They thank their fans for their “understanding during this difficult time.”
