Following the tragic death of their sister and daughter of country icon Hank Williams Jr., singer-songwriters Sam Williams and Holly Williams have broken their silence on social media.

Katherine “Katie” Williams-Dunning died Saturday (June 13) after a car accident in West Tennessee, when the SUV she was traveling in crossed the median and rolled over. The 27-year-old Williams-Dunning was pronounced dead at the scene, while her 29-year-old husband Tyler was airlifted to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in critical condition. She is survived by two children, 5-year-old Beau and 2-year-old Audrey.

The Williams family have now shared a series of remembrances, including multiple photos and requests for prayers on social media.
