"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.
