Jessica Chastain, Margo Price, And Other Celebrities Mourn Luke Bell’s Death: “A Sad Night For Country Music”
On Monday, more than a week after he was reported missing in Arizona, country singer Luke Bell was discovered dead in Tucson (August 29). He was 32 years old at the time.
While no cause of death was given as of press time, the Tucson Police Department told Billboard that “the investigation is ongoing at the moment,” with no further details provided.
Matt Kinman, a close friend and fellow country singer who said he was with Bell recently and had been taking care of him for six years as he navigated a severe battle with bipolar disorder, reportedly told Saving Country Music — which broke the story — that Bell went missing on August 20.
Don’t Mind If I Do, Bell’s debut full-length album, was released on Bandcamp in 2014, and he later signed to the Thirty Tigers label. Bell’s most recent release was a 2021 cover of John Lennon’s 1971 ballad “Jealous Guy,” best known for his traditionalist honky tonk country songs “Where Ya Been?” and “The Bullfighter” from his 2016 self-titled Thirty Tigers debut.
