Hank Jr.’s wife of more than 30 years, she was just 58 at the time of her death (other reports cited her age at 61).

And today, Hank took to Instagram to share his thoughts on the matter, to thank fans for the support, and announce that he will continue to tour despite this awful tragedy.

The family has encouraged me to perform this weekend. Not only is it healing, but I do not want to disappoint my fans who have purchased tickets.”
