This country star is deeply upset after the world learned of the passing of a young 22-year-old woman just yesterday.

Granddaughter of Robert and Ethel Kennedy and daughter of Courtney Kennedy Hill, this tragic news of the death of Saoirse Kennedy Hill came about after police received a 911 call from the family’s Hyannis Port compound in Massachusetts.

ABC News reports that her death is from a suspected overdose and the Kennedy family is truly shattered by the passing of this young and bright light in their lives.

“Our hearts are shattered by the loss of our beloved Saoirse. Her life was filled with hope, promise, and love.” The Kennedy Family said in a statement to ABC News.

Also mourning the loss is Kenny Chesney, who shared a sweet photo of himself with Saoirse during a backstage event at his concert. They all have smiles on their faces and look like the happiest folks around.

“Love you Saoirse. You will be missed,” he wrote. 

Truly his connection with Saoirse goes deeper than just the one photo, and it’s clear that she meant a lot to him.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Kennedy family and all of Saoirse’s loved ones as they navigate this very difficult situation.
