Country singer Lindsey Renee Lagestee, the lead female vocalist of the country music band Dixie Crush has died.

Her death comes days after she was hit by a car on her way to a Valentine’s Day performance in Chicago, the band said on Facebook.

According to Dixie Crush, which bills itself as “the Midwest’s Ultimate Country Party Band,” Lagestee was a founding member of the group in 2015. The group called Lagestee an “incredible performer, great friend, and the best bandmate.”

“Above and beyond her beautiful voice, Lindsey just had a way of connecting with every audience leaving an indelible impression,” the band said on Facebook. “Not only would she give an amazing performance, but after every show, Lindsey would come offstage, take time to meet anyone who wanted to say hi, take pictures, and build friendships.”

“Like a true professional, it made no difference to Lindsey whether we were playing to 40,000 people at Arlington Racecourse, a few thousand people at Parkway Bank Park in Rosemont, a few hundred people at a community festival, or the last 25 patrons at 1:00am at a club, Lindsey cherished every moment on stage and put her heart and soul into every song…every performance,” the group said.

According to the group's website, the band performs Top 40 hits from country music’s biggest stars and has performed over 250 shows in the past few years.
