He was truly one of the greatest and kindest people on and off stage we’ve ever known.

The singer himself shared a tribute to his friend and drummer on Instagram, saying, “Love you so much dude!!! 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.
