Condolences are pouring in via social media on the death of country music songwriter Andrew Dorff, who was responsible for penning such hits as Kenny Chesney’s “Save It for a Rainy Day,” Hunter Hayes’ “Somebody’s Heartbreak” and Blake Shelton’s “Neon Light.”
Andrew’s father, Steve Dorff, posted a thank you for the “outpouring of love and prayer” on Facebook:
The son of songwriter Steve Dorff Sr. and brother of actor Stephen Dorff, Andrew moved to Nashville from L.A. in 2003 to pursue songwriting. He went on to sign with Universal Music Publishing Group Nashville.
Andrew’s cause of death has not been released. According to the Miami-Dade medical examiner’s office, the songwriter died Monday night (Dec. 19). He was 40 years old.
Country stars like Chase Rice, Dan + Shay, Martina McBride and more have shared their condolences via Twitter.
Thank you all for the outpouring of love and prayer. There simply are no words for the unbearable heartbreaking loss my family and I are feeling today. May God bless my Son Andrew, the best friend any Father could have. Your light will forever shine in my heart, and in all those who were lucky enough to know you.
