Country Music Star Luke Combs Pays Funeral Expenses For 3 Men Who Died At Music Festival

Country music star Luke Combs has paid for the funeral expenses of the three men who died at Faster Horses Festival, a country music festival that took place July 16-18 in Brooklyn, Michigan.

Dawson Brown, Kole Sova, and Richie Mays Jr. were found dead at a campground near the country music festival. Officials said the cause appeared to be carbon monoxide poisoning from a nearby generator.

A publicist for Combs confirmed that he had paid for the funerals but said Combs did not wish to provide any further comment.

Combs was one of the headliners at the three-day festival held earlier this month.

Brown, Mays and Sova were found dead in a travel trailer. Two other men were critically injured and remain in the hospital.

A woman was found dead on the festival grounds in an unrelated incident, investigators say.

Arthur-Day Funeral Home office manager Debbie Branham said the community support both locally and nationally has been overwhelming.

GoFundMe page had already raised close to $67,000 at the time of publication.
