Singer Justin Carter has tragically died aged 35 after accidentally shooting himself.
The up-and-coming Country star was filming a music video when he discharged his gun by mistake, piercing his eye and head.
The gun was being used as a prop at the time.
Justin’s mum Cindy McClellen told Fox News the devastating incident occurred on Sunday, not long before he was about to head off on a 10-state tour.
“He was a wonderful person, very loving and he loved our God very much,” she said of her son.
“He had a Bible in his room, in the den, he had one in his truck. He gave to charities.
“He just loved music, he was very gifted and by God, his voice was spectacular.”
Justin was also a loving father to two daughters, Dixie and Kaylee.
McClellen emotionally revealed that her son primarily wanted to succeed in music in order to “take care of his family”.
The Infinite pieces and Leaves singer’s passing was also confirmed on his social media.
A post on his Instagram and Facebook told fans: Please keep Justin’s family in your prayers and give them privacy in this hard time.
His management heartbreakingly added: “Justin had a potential to –you know, in our eyes, and a lot of people’s eyes – to be the next Garth Brooks.”
