LANSING, MICHIGAN: Country crooner Luke Combs is reportedly paying for the funeral of three young men, who lost their lives after attending his show. 19-year-old Meeka Sova, William 'Richie' Mays Jr, 20, and Dawson Brown, 20, died last week. Their bodies were found inside a travel trailer on July 17. According to police, they died because of being exposed to emissions from a portable generator that was placed too close to their camper.

The incident also seriously affected two other 20-year-old men – Rayfield Johnson and Kurtis Stitt. But they survived after they were taken to the hospital. However, their condition remains critical. Kole’s mother, Meeka Sova, said: “For him to reach out and do that, I don’t even have the words. I wish I could just give him a hug.” Mays’ mother recalled the moment during Combs' appearance at the Faster Horses Festival when she held her son’s hand for the last time. “That was his last song with his mother. They were at the concert. They were holding hands. It’s just a memory. Just for him to reach out and show the humanity and the kindness; it’s a tribute, you know? These boys’ lives were taken so early. It’s just a difficult time,” Amy Satterthwaite said.

Combs’ spokeswoman Asha Goodman said the singer had no comments regarding the donation. But Meeka was full of gratitude as she told local news network WILX 10, “We all got the news at the same time. We were all there and everybody was just shocked. We just can't believe it. It warmed our hearts. We were having a rough day, and everybody was tense. With that news you just felt warmth in your heart.”

The devastated mother added: “Him doing that, there's meaning behind it. That was the last concert we were at with our boys. That is where we were last all together having a fun time. When we left that concert that was the last time we had seen them. They went one way home and we went the other way.”
