Over the weekend, the daughter of musician Chris Daughtry, Hannah, was found dead in her Tennessee, home. She was only 25. Now, Daughtry has issued a statement on social media about the tragic incident.

“I am still processing the last 24 hours. I am absolutely devastated and heartbroken,” Daughtry stated on social media. “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.”

He 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.”

According to USA Today, “Hannah’s body was found at her home in Fentress County, Tennessee, on Friday (Nov. 12). She was pronounced dead at the scene, according to a second statement from Daughtry’s reps. Medical examiners are still investigating the cause of death, the statement added.”

Daughtry’s reps also released a statement on behalf of the family regarding upcoming tour dates, stating all of the stops for Daughtry’s Dearly Beloved Tour will be postponed.

“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 statement said.

The “American Idol” alum married his wife, Deanna Daughtry, in 2000. Deanna had Hannah and her son Griffin from a previous relationship, and Daughtry adopted both of the children, in addition 10-year-old twins Adalynn and Noah.
