It was just reported via Twitter from the LoCash Cowboys that their fiddle player had passed away.  Here's what they wrote:

Today is a sad day in the Locash World. We lost Ryan "Troop" Jones...our Brother & our Best Friend. Our thoughts & prayers go out to his family. TROOP WILL LIVE FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS. -Locash

When LoCash was at the Legendary Live Music Fest, our own Baby Boy Brian got a chance to chat with him, and get to know him.  Check out this post from May.

Our hearts go out to Ryan's family and the entire LoCash family.
