Country music artist and Franklin resident, Walker Hayes and his family are grieving the loss of their daughter.

On Facebook, Hayes shared the news with fans,“It is with great sadness that Laney and I share with you the news that our sweet Oakleigh Klover Hayes was born this morning at the hospital and is now safely in heaven. Thank you for honoring our privacy as we grieve.”

His team also stated that Hayes has canceled his immediate appearances to be home with Laney and their six children. Hayes was scheduled to perform last night at the CMT Awards.

The couple first shared the news of their pregnancy at CMA Awards 2017 and chose not to find out the gender of the baby until delivery as they have three girls and three boys.
