Fans and locals from Texas are coming together on social media to honor the memory of Laura Lynch, a founding member of The Dixie Chicks. Lynch, aged 65, tragically lost her life in a car accident near El Paso, Texas, on Friday (December 22). The Texas Department of Public Safety reported that a car attempting to pass on a two-lane, undivided highway collided head-on with Lynch’s car, leading to her immediate passing.

The current members of The Chicks took to social media to pay their respects to Lynch, sharing a video of an early Dixie Chicks performance featuring the original members. “Laura was a bright light…her infectious energy and humor gave a spark to the early days of our band. Laura had a gift for design, a love of all things Texas and was instrumental in the early success of the band,” expressed Natalie Maines, Emily Robison, and Martie Maguire on Twitter.
