"I started getting real sad [while driving] and then all of a sudden, these random cows show up in the middle of the road", she said.

The Big Ol' Heartache singer was driving to Taos, New Mexico where she was scheduled to perform at the Big Barn Dance Music Festival.

The upset star mentioned: 'Then all of a sudden these random cows show up in the middle of the road, and I know it might sound really insane, but there was this time, it's one thing we all the time talked about with my dad and my sister. Reports state that alcohol is suspected to be one of causes of the crash. "It scared me thinking that it was totally possible I could be gone before my daughter reaches that point", she said earlier this year.

Harris in previous interviews recalled family road trips when she would sit in the back of her parents' Suburban and sing along with Radney Foster and Jerry Jeff Walker.

In 2013, Harris released her first EP Taking It Back and a year later, she won 2014 female vocalist of the year from the Texas Regional Radio Music Awards. "I want to meet my kid's kids".

"She was a great person and she made everybody feel welcomed and loved and cared for", fellow Texas country artist Randy Rogers tells Taste of Country.
