After the passing of music icon Prince, who was found at his suburban Minneapolis home on Thursday, April 21, the Nashville industry offered condolences. Many are compiled below and will continue to be added.

“One of my most vivid memories with [Prince’s] music is when we were on the Own The Night Tour with Darius Rucker. Every night, Darius would close his set with “Purple Rain.” This is kind of a light-hearted moment, but during one of the last shows on the tour, Charles [Kelley] went out dressed as Prince. Obviously, with Prince being much smaller in stature than Charles, who is like 6’ 6”, it was one of the most sweet, funny, hilarious moments. I don’t know how you really…there is no one comparable to him. That’s a really sad loss to hear about. So many people even to this day right now are in a room on this block somewhere are trying to emulate what he did. But thankfully we have a lot of really incredible music that we will never have to not have. That’s really sad.” — Hillary Scott, Lady Antebellum
