In Texas, country singer Randy Rogers and his wife, Chelsea, are grieving the loss of their newborn daughter. Their baby, Rumor Rain, was six-days old and died of natural causes.
On Facebook, the Randy Rogers Band frontman said, “Rumer died of natural causes, in her parents loving arms, just days after her birth. During this time of grieving, the family asks that individuals wishing to offer condolences make a donation to the children’s charity of their choosing. The family thanks you for your love and support.”
Additionally, in a statement to radio station 93Q, Rogers said, “She died in our arms and in no pain. She was absolutely beautiful in every way. Her brain however was very sick.” He added, “She died after a week-long battle with a very rare condition. I’m sure you all have many questions and we have all the answers the doctors gave us. We can share the story with you. It’s quite an extraordinary one. A memorial will be planned soon. We love you.”
On June 3, Rumor Rain was born at Seton Memorial Hospital in Austin, Texas. Her parents, Randy and Chelsea, shared a picture of their new addition on Twitter. Below the picture, they wrote, “Newest member of the Rogers family, Rumer Rain. It’s a good day, friends.” In 2013, Randy and Chelsea welcomed their first daughter, River Rose, into their family.
Rogers is set to perform at the 2015 Colorado Country Jam Festival alongside Keith Urban, Toby Keith and Tim McGraw. However, he recently canceled a performance scheduled in Texas on June 11th.
