One Country would like to send their condolences to the family, friends and fans of The Warren Brothers. The 21-year-old son of Brad Warren, Sage, has passed away according to a post on the duo’s Instagram page.
The post simply and reverently shares details for Sage’s safely socially distanced visitation and funeral service, and adds that donations can be made to Porter’s Call, which provides emotional counseling or support to members of the music community or MusiCares a resource for health, financial and rehabilitation services to those in the music industry.
While the cause of Sage’s untimely death is unknown, we do know that the young man, the oldest of three siblings, had been a student at Father Ryan High School, a private Catholic school in Nashville. His younger brothers, his father, and his mother, Michelle, mourn his passing.
Sage’s father and uncle, Brett, first gained national attention in the late 1990s when they signed a record deal as The Warren Brothers with BNA Records, then the home of stars like Kenny Chesney, Lonestar and Mindy McCready. Their song, “That’s the Beat of a Heart,” was featured in the movie, Where the Heart Is, starring Natalie Portman, Stockard Channing and Ashley Judd. They gained even greater success after transitioning into being full-time songwriters penning hits for Tim McGraw (“Highway Don’t Care”), Faith Hill (“The Lucky One”), Martina McBride (“Anyway”), Dierks Bentley (“Feel That Fire”), Toby Keith (“Red Solo Cup”), Jason Aldean (“Lights Come On”) and Michael Ray (“Real Men Love Jesus”).
Our thoughts and prayers join those of the rest of Nashville’s country music community at news of this heartbreaking loss.
