RIP Busbee. Thank you for your talent and for sharing a little bit of it with me. Glad I got to spend some time with you on this crazy ride. ❤️— Alex Gaskarth (@AlexGaskarth) September 30, 2019
I absolutely can’t accept the loss of mine and Gwen’s friend Michael (Busbee)..Too much to say for social media. Too much pain and unfairness period. I guess sometimes you gotta dig extra EXTRA deep for peace to continue to have faith. And I will because Michael ALWAYS had faith.— Blake Shelton (@blakeshelton) September 30, 2019
This just doesn’t seem fair. I will always love you and the songs and albums I was lucky to make with you, Busbee. Rest well, my sweet friend. 💔 pic.twitter.com/9DKsU5G77a— MAREN MORRIS (@MarenMorris) September 30, 2019
