Lubbock country singer Josh Abbott revealed Friday the sad news that his father has passed away.

Abbott shared the news on his Twitter and Instagram pages, asking fans to "pray for our peace of mind."

In February, Abbott revealed that his father had suffered a stroke and wasn't doing well.

The Josh Abbott Band had previously canceled several upcoming shows, citing the elder Abbott's sickness and Josh's need to be with his family. Just one day ago, Abbott said: "Unless a miracle occurs, we fear this will be [my dad’s] last week here with us."

Abbott also shared a touching moment with his father in the hospital, which you can see below.

Please keep Josh Abbott, his family and their friends in your thoughts during this tragic time.
