  • Kings of Leon pay tribute to country singer Blaze Foley here. At the age of 39, Foley was shot in the chest and killed by Carey January, the son of Foley's friend Concho January.

    "[Foley] was a troubled guy with a really beautiful voice," vocalist Caleb Followill told Entertainment Weekly. "When he sang, it felt like he was talking to you. You wanted to hear what he had to say."
