Additionally, Pharr shared that police pinged Terri’s phone near the top of Monteagle Mountain, a treacherous stretch of interstate that runs across the Cumberland Plateau between Nashville and Chattanooga. The road is considered one of the most dangerous in America due to it’s 2,000 foot rise and steep grade.

New Breed Music Group, Kathey’s management and record label, confirmed her passing in a post that read, “It is with a sad heart to announce Terri Lynn Kathy has gone home to God.
