Christian artist and Franklin resident TobyMac and his family suffered a sudden loss when his oldest son Truett Foster McKeehan died at the age of 21.

Truett was an aspiring artist/rapper who collaborated with TobyMac as well as DC Talk.

TobyMac’s publicist released the following statement:

Truett did pass away at his home in the Nashville area sometime Tuesday night or Wednesday morning. Cause of death has not been determined. Toby was traveling back from Canada and did not get home to be with his family until after midnight last night so there is no statement, we just ask that everyone please be respectful of their privacy during this time and allow them to grieve their loss.

TobyMac and wife, Amanda have five children.
