An up-and-coming country singer died in a rollover crash in Texas earlier this month, officials confirmed Monday.

Taylor Dee, 33, a well-known musician in North Texas, was considered on her way to stardom when she was killed in the March 14 wreck in Euless, according to a news release.

Linda Wilson, president of the Texas Country Music Association, said Dee’s death had shocked the local music community.

“Taylor Dee was the real deal – a true talent with a heart and passion not only for her music but for people,” Wilson told the Texas Newsroom.

“In every performance, her talent was evident, but more importantly she allowed her fans to know her heart. She will be missed tremendously,” Wilson said.

She left behind two young children — a son, Vayden, and a daughter, River.

Dee, whose legal name was Taylor Dawn Carroll, was driving a 2002 Chevrolet Trailblazer eastbound on the State Highway 183 toll lane around 10:30 p.m., the night of the crash, Euless police said.

She tried to take the exit to Highway 360, but is believed to have missed the turn by a split-second, according to local outlet KTVT.

Her SUV rammed into a barrier and rolled over on its side, hitting an overhead sign.
