At the age of 41, musician Nolan Neal passed dead. The Nashville artist gained notoriety for appearing on Season 10 of The Voice in 2016 and Season 15 of America’s Got Talent in 2020.
Dylan Seals, the musician’s cousin, told TMZ that Neal was found dead on July 18 in his Nashville residence by his roommate.
The cause of death has not been stated in detail. A guitar pick that “appeared to have powder residue” was found on Neal’s nightstand, according to law enforcement.
The performer had previously been open about his struggles with drug abuse and sang an original song he had written called “Lost” as part of his America’s Got Talent audition.
During his audition, Neal discussed how his father’s suicide motivated him to advance his musical career. His drug problems grew worse after signing a record deal in Los Angeles, but “Lost” was the first song he wrote after giving up drugs. The judges gave him a standing ovation for the song.
In the quarterfinals of the AGT Season 15 competition, Neal made another powerful original performance with “Send Me a Butterfly.”
The song “Send Me a Butterfly” by Neal is mostly about death and loss; it tells the story of a loved one who has died and the search for proof of an afterlife.
On July 18, Neal passed away, and the lyrics from “Send Me a Butterfly” were used in a post on the singer’s official Instagram fan page to pay tribute to him.
NOLAN NEAL SEALS: “Send a butterfly our way. On the other side, see you. Let your halo shine and spread your wings. The image reads, “R.I.P. YOU CRAZY DIAMOND,” along with the words, “I can’t believe you’re gone from us.”
