AceShowbiz - Rising country star Justin Carter has died after he was accidentally shot while filming a music video.
The 35-year-old Texan was shooting a music video at his apartment in Houston on Saturday, March 16 when a real gun was mistaken for a prop.
According to Carter's Facebook page, he was at work on a solo album at the time of his death and had lined up a series of tour dates for 2019.
He signed a new deal with Mark Atherton of Triple Threat Management days before his death. He now plans to release all the music Carter has recorded and hand over the proceeds from sales to his family.
A fund for funeral expenses has also been set up, according to Taste of Country.
