Country music singer Kylie Rae Harris has died in a multi-car crash in New Mexico, which also claimed the life of a 16-year-old girl.
The 30-year-old musician who is from Texas was traveling to a music festival in Taos where she was billed to perform, when she got into the crash on Wednesday at around 9pm.

Court records show the singer was convicted in June 2017 of driving while intoxicated with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of more than 0.15, almost double the legal limit of 0.08.
She was fined $460.10 for the offense, and the judge ordered an Ignition Interlock Device be attached to her car that required her to take a breathalyzer test before getting behind the wheel.
In 2014, Harris was also fined $302 for speeding after she was caught driving 81mph in a 60mph zone in Dallas.
When the fatal accident happened on Wednesday night along State Road 522, killing both Harris and Cruz, both were wearing seat belts while driving their respective vehicles, at the time.

She shared a haunting final Instagram story describing how many of her relatives had died in the exact area she was driving through.
‘I just got to Taos, I’m playing this festival here.
‘I love this festival, for those of you who don’t know… my grandparents lived here, my uncle still lives here, but literally everybody that was here has passed away except from my uncle and including my dad and I’m going to cry, driving these roads… you would think, I’ve been driving for almost 12 hours, you’d think that’s so exhausting and boring but the last couple of hours just driving through the mountains, remembering my place in the backseat as a little kid when my dad was making these treks here it was the f*****g best,’ she said.
She went on to say that ‘everyone grieves’ differently.
