Speed Played Major Role In Kane Brown’s Drummer’s Death, Kane Postpones Staples Center Anniversary Concert

More news has been released following the tragic death of Kane Brown‘s drummer, Kenny Dixon.

According to Tennessee Highway Patrol, the crash only involved Kenny Dixon, and speed was to blame.

The Tennessean states he was driving a “2016 KIA RIO LX east in the right lane on I-24 at a high rate of speed when the vehicle exited off the right side of the roadway approximately 100 yards.”

He then hit a tree straight on. The crash took place in Christiana, just outside of Nashville.

Drugs and alcohol are not suspected to have played a role. Given the tragedy, Kane postponed his upcoming Staples Center Anniversary Concert in LA.

In a Facebook post, Kane shared the following:

I want to thank everyone for your outpouring of support and understanding and working with us as we reschedule the Staples Center 20th Anniversary show that was scheduled for Friday, October 18, 2019. The new show date will be Thursday, January 9, 2020 – thank you for your thoughts and prayers.

A GoFundMe page was started to support Kenny’s fiancée and son:

“On Saturday October 12th 2019, Kenny Dixon unexpectedly passed away. Kenny was a dedicated and loving father, son, fiancé, brother, and friend. As many of you know, Kenny was an exceptional drummer. He carried himself with such positivity that he would light up every room he walked into, and he always brought authentic love, joy, and passion into others’ lives. He would not only light up rooms but also clubs, theaters, stadiums, and arenas around the country with his infectious passion for playing music—continuously striving to be the best that he could be. He simply was the “heartbeat” on stage. It is in these times of loss and sadness when we come together to help support the people we care for. As Sarah and Levi start this next chapter in life, any support that is able to be provided is more than appreciated. *This fundraiser has been created for Sarah and Levi by the members of their band family.”
