Kylie Rae Harris was involved in a fatal car accident last night in Northern New Mexico while in the area for a performance at the Barn Dance Music Festival. Her warmth, smile, and musical impact always left such a strong impression on everyone here at Texas Music Pickers and the Texas/Red Dirt community at large. Our heart goes out to the 30-year-old, Wylie, Texas native, her daughter, family, and friends. Her camp has put out an official statement in regards to the tragic events:
We are heartbroken to confirm that Kylie Rae Harris passed away in a car accident last night. We have no further details to share, and ask for privacy for her family at this time. Everyone that knew Kylie knew how much she loved her family and, beyond that, how much she loved music. The best tribute to her unmatched enthusiasm for both is to spread as much love as you can today, and listen to music that fully inspires you.
In remembrance of her, we’ve put together a playlist of our favorite tunes from Kylie. Turn it up, shout it at the top of your lungs, cry to it, or just sit and listen and remember…
