“With a heavy heart, I’m sad to say that a man passed away last night after stepping out in front of my bus in Indiana. In all the years I’ve been touring and all the miles we’ve driven, nothing prepares you for something like this to happen,” Aldean wrote.
Identifying the victim as Albert Kennedy, Aldean added, “I’m praying for Albert Kennedy’s family and friends today and ask that you do the same.”
