Country music legend Hank Williams Jr.’s daughter, Katherine Williams-Dunning, died in a car crash in Tennessee on Saturday Evening.

Katherine Williams-Dunning, daughter of legendary country music singer Hank Williams Jr., died in a fatal car crash in Tennessee on Saturday Evening. She was 27. 

According to Tennessee Highway Patrol, Williams-Dunning was driving on a highway while towing a boat in Henry County, approximately 100 miles west of Nashville. Shortly after crossing the dividing median of the highway, the SUV flipped over, as reported by CBS News.  

Her husband Tyler Dunning, 29, was in the passenger seat and was airlifted to an emergency room for treatment. 

Williams-Dunning’s father is the Grammy award-winning country music singer Hank Williams Jr., renowned for hits like ‘All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight’ and ‘Born To Boogie’. Her mother, Mary Jane, is his third wife. 

Her older sister, singer-songwriter Holly Audrey Williams, remembered her sister in an emotional Instagram post on Sunday. 

“I have no words,” she said of the family picture. “On Friday morning I talked the family into taking this picture and had no idea it would be our last together with my precious little sister Katie.” 

“We all went to my great aunts’ funeral on Thursday whom we all loved dearly, and now are faced with another one,” she continued. 

Her post also provided details about Tyler Dunning’s condition, saying that he was ‘awake and responding’, but that the family doesn’t know the extent of his injuries yet. 

Referring to their father, Hank Williams Jr., and extended family, Williams asked fans to keep them in their prayers: “ALL we need is prayers. My daddy. My little brother. Katie’s husband (he is awake and responding don’t know injury extent yet). My niece and nephew. Her Mama. The Dunning family. All of us. So. Many. Prayers.” 

Katherine Williams-Dunning is survived by her husband and two kids.
