Chris Daughtry Reschedules Upcoming Tour After Daughter’s Death
Rumors continue to swirl after the recent death of Chris Daughtry’s daughter. The lead singer for the rock band Daughtry announced that their upcoming Dearly Beloved tour will be rescheduled. Hannah Daughtry’s mysterious death has been ruled a homicide. Bobby Jolly, Hannah’s boyfriend, has been in a Fentress County Jail since Friday. Police did not share information on the arrest, but they acknowledged that an investigation is underway.
Hannah, who is Chris’s wife Deanna’s child from a previous relationship, was found deceased in her Nashville home on Friday, Nov. 12. Hannah’s death is reportedly being ruled a homicide, but Deanna denied those claims on an Instagram post in an effort to clear up the rumors.
“The news floating around that we said our daughters death is being investigated as a homicide is false! We were not told that and never said that to anyone! The day Hannah was found I shared some concerns I had with some people I know and said we won’t know anything for sure till after they complete the investigation. Someone took that and went running with it. They talked to someone else who then made assumptions and went running to the press with it. None of us can go jumping to conclusions,” Deanna wrote.
On Daughtry’s official Instagram, the group informed fans that the remainder of the tour would be rescheduled into 2022 in light of the family circumstances.
Daughtry Was a Fan Favorite on American Idol
Fans will remember Daughtry from his rise to fame on Season 5 of American Idol. The singer placed fourth, but soon after his elimination, he achieved success with his band Daughtry.
Their self-titled debut album became the fastest-selling debut rock album in sound scan history and two of the album’s songs, “It’s Not Over” and “Home,” received Grammy Award nominations. To this day, Daughtry has sold over 8 million albums.
Daughtry has spoken openly about how his family influences his music:
“I think every dad probably feels this way about their kids: No matter how old they get or how young they are, you’re always going to be there to fight for them, and you’re always going to be there to pick them up when they fall down,” he explained in a 2013 interview promoting his new single at the time, “Waiting For Superman.”
Taking much needed time off is the best thing for Daughtry. He is also mourning the death of his mother, who he lost this year.
Via the rock band’s official website, tickets are on sale for their rescheduled shows. The tour will kick off in Bethlehem, PA. For fans looking for early access can pre order VIP tickets on Daughtry’s Patreon.
