Loved ones have sent their condolences, as band Mike and the Moonpies wrote in a Facebook tribute: "Word just came down on the passing of Luke Bell and we’re heartbroken over the news. I can vividly remember the first time I met Luke at Hole in the Wall over a decade ago, down to the clothes on his back.
"The man (and his music) left an impression. He was a real deal traveling troubadour out there on that lost highway. Do yourself a favor and put on some Luke Bell tunes tonight in his memory. Rest In Peace, friend."
Luke Bell was a country musician from Cody, Wyoming.
After dropping out of the University of Wyoming, he moved to Austin, Texas, to pursue a career in country music.
