Jason Aldean took to social media to express his sadness following the incident:
"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. I'm praying for Albert Kennedy's family and friends today and ask that you do the same."
This is a difficult time for the family of the victim as well as the entire crew involved with Jason Aldean and his tour. Details of how this tragic event happened will be forthcoming.
It has been a rough year for Jason Aldean, who has also been dealing with rumors of an affair and a "rocky marriage."
