Tony Rice’s stepson killed in motorcycle accident

| August 17, 2011 | 1 Comment

John Christian Scott, son of Tony and Pam Rice, died earlier today after a head-on collision while riding his motorcycle in North Carolina. Chris was airlifted from Burlington where the accident occurred to the hospital at the University of North Carolina, but passed en route.

Chris leaves behind his wife, Betsy, and four children, Aaron, Victoria, Levi and Donovan. He was Pam’s son, Tony’s step-son.

Surely the entire bluegrass and acoustic music world is devastated to learn of this awful tragedy, and will send Tony and Pam – and the entire Scott family – all the prayers and encouragement they can muster.
