Chris Daughtry is mourning the loss of his daughter Hannah, 25, after her sudden death.
The rock singer’s reps released a statement on behalf of the family saying upcoming dates for Daughtry’s Dearly Beloved Tour will be postponed as the family asks for privacy during this “difficult time.”
“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 reads.
Hannah’s body was found at her home in Fentress County, Tennessee, on Friday. According to Daughtry’s second statement, Hannah was declared dead on the spot. The statement also stated that medical examiners continue to investigate the cause of her death.
“I am still processing the last 24 hours. I am devastated and heartbroken. “I just lost my mother to cancer last week, but I was blessed with the opportunity to say goodbye. I was privately processing it,” Chris Daughtry stated in a Saturday statement. It’s another big hit for our family. “We never got the chance to say goodbye to Hannah, and it’s not something we could have done. “
“My first born. Hannah, I love you so much. “Our family would like you to know how much we appreciate your support as we mourn the loss of Hannah,” she wrote.
Chris Daughtry and Deanna Daughtry were married in 2000. Deanna was previously married to Griffin and Hannah. Chris Daughtry has adopted both of the eldest children while also having 10-year-old twins Adalynn and Noah.
Daughtry’s tour kicked off Nov. 2 in Cincinnati. According to the website, the Saturday show in Silverspring (Maryland) and Sunday show in Uncasville (Conn.) have been postponed due to this news. No new dates have been announced.
“I am now taking time to be present with my family as we attempt to heal from this series of devastating losses. Hannah, I miss you so much. I wish I could hold your hand. Chris Daughtry said that this hurts so deeply.
Members of the music community sent comforting words to the Daughtry family.

The Dearly Beloved Tour is the first time Daughtry and his band have toured since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. Last august, the band launched the virtual concert series “Live From Home”. The proceeds from streamed performances were donated live venues across the country as many were closed due to stay-at home restrictions.
