We Are Mourning The Loss Of Another Country Singer

The Red Dirt community is mourning the loss of one of their own.

Sadly, Brandon Jenkins has passed away at the age of 48.

Jenkins died yesterday after suffering complications from heart surgery.

While in the hospital, Brandon kept his fans up-to-date by sharing updates on social media.

The verdict is in... I will require major heart surgery to replace my heart valve. Will have to be done soon... so probably within the next week or so.

Complications arose immediately following the surgery, and unfortunately, Jenkins never stabilized.

Farewell Brandon Jenkins. Tough loss for fans of Red Dirt and the Texas and Okla Music Scene. Even tougher for those that knew him. It happened so fast. We never know our time....make the best of what we are given. Life owes us nothing.
