After stopping for food in Tucson, Bell reportedly left his friend and fellow musician Matt Kinman‘s truck, as the blog Saving Country Music reported. Bell, according to Kinman, recently switched bipolar disorder medications. An investigation is ongoing, police told Today.
In 2016, Bell released his third studio album, Bell, after signing with the Nashville independent label Thirty Tigers. Bell did not go on many tours, but he did open for big names like Willie Nelson and Dwight Yoakam. After releasing “Jealous Guy” in January 2021, that was his last single. David Macias, the founder of Thirty Tigers, referred to Bell as a “true original” in a tweet. “From all at @ThirtyTigers, we send love and hope for eternal peace to our friend Luke Bell,” he wrote. “Thanks for riding a while with us.”
The country singer’s family released a statement on his death Friday morning, saying he had been suffering from “mental illness” since his father’s passing. “Our hearts go out to the millions of people affected by mental illness who, like us, understand the devastating disappointment of a system that consistently fails to provide caring solutions to those who suffer,” wrote the Bell family. “Our only comfort comes in the fact that our Luke is finally free and at peace.”
We lost a true original today. From all at @ThirtyTigers, we send love and hope for eternal peace to our friend Luke Bell. Thanks for riding a while with us. 💔
