Country singer Luke Bell, 32, was found dead in Arizona earlier this month, authorities said Tuesday.
The “Where have you been?” singer was found Friday in Tucson, Officer Frank Magos said.
No additional details were provided and officials said an investigation was underway.
Bell, who was reported missing, was discovered near where he was last seen, Tucson police said the New York Post.
Bell, a native of Cody, Wyoming, was a ranch hand and spent “a few years of college” in Laramie before continuing his music career, according to one Spotify bio.
He released a self-titled debut album in 2012, describing his sound as “a little bit honky tonk and a little bit Texas, with healthy dashes of Bakersfield and vintage Nashville,” according to the bio.
After releasing his second album “Don’t Mind If I Do” in 2014, he opened for acts such as Willie Nelson, Dwight Yoakam and Hank Williams Jr.
Bell released his latest single “Jealous Guy” in 2021.
“It was a very different route to take; there are no musicians in my family,” Bell . told The boot in 2016. “College really didn’t do it for me, and I was looking for an independent platform to start learning, and music was that.”
As for finding his drive and being on the road, he said, “I live in the day and I count smiles. That is it.”
‘Life isn’t that bad after all. The downside is in some ways I don’t have a wife and kids, but at the same time it’s pretty ideal right now,” he said. “I just travel to other cities and hang out with other people.”
