Dixie Crush lead vocalist, Lindsey Renee Lagestee died at 25 on Monday after being hit by a car when she was on her way to perform at a Valentine’s Day in Chicago, the band informed through their official Facebook page. The band which claims to be the Midwest’s Ultimate Country Party Band said the deceased was founding member of the group that started performing in 2015 and praised her as incredible performer, great friend, and the best bandmate as they wrote the eulogies for the former band member.
“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.”
The group said it had played more than 250 shows that spread across 5 years.
“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 musical group added.
