Chris was found unresponsive in his Detroit hotel room last night, following a show at the Fox Theatre. A representative has called his death "sudden and unexpected" and explained that Cornell's family will be "working closely with the medical examiner to determine the cause."
As news started to break, Zac Brown Band posted this message on twitter this morning, sendings his thoughts to the family.
