We woke up to tragic news this morning. Chris Cornell, lead singer of Soundgarden / Audioslave, hanged himself after a concert in Detroit last night. His family are in our thoughts.
Country stars were quick to honour the music icon, including Zac Brown of the Zac Brown Band. Cornell joined ZBB for a song from their Jekyll + Hyde album.
Chris Cornell touched so many & we were fortunate to have worked w/ him. He was a true talent & gentleman. Our thoughts are with his family.— Zac Brown Band (@zacbrownband) May 18, 2017
Other country stars were quick to make their thoughts known too.
The world has lost one of the greatest rock singers of all time. This one stings. RIP Chris Cornell.— Brothers Osborne (@brothersosborne) May 18, 2017
We had Tim Hicks on the show today. Tim offered his thoughts on the music icons untimely death.
Gone too soon, but not forgotten. RIP Chris Cornell.
