CHRIS Daughtry has postponed a number of his tour dates after the sudden death of his stepdaughter Hannah.

The singer-songwriter, 41, was in the middle of his Dearly Beloved Tour but has now flown to Nashville, Tennessee, to be with his grieving family.

His 25-year-old stepdaughter Hannah was found dead in her Nashville home by law enforcement officers Friday, according to People.

The tragic news was confirmed by a rep for the singer to the news outlet who added the singer would be taking time out from the tour.

“Due to the unexpected death of Chris and Deanna Daughtry's daughter, Hannah, all currently scheduled shows for the coming week for Daughtry have been postponed,” they said.

The rep added the singer and his loved ones wanted to be left in private while they grieved.

“The Daughtry family thanks you for your understanding and respectfully asks for privacy during this very difficult time,” they said.

The circumstances surrounding Hannah’s death are currently being looked into, according to the rep.

“Further details will be made available at a later date. The investigation into this tragic death is still ongoing,” they added.

Daughtry shared Hannah with his wife Deanna, who he married in 2000.

Deanna gave birth to their twin Adalynn Rose and Noah James in 2010.

The couple also share a stepson called Griffin.

The message from the singer’s rep was shared by Deanna on her Instagram account Friday and she posted a picture of a burning candle in her post.

Daughtry then reposted the image to his Instagram story.

In a 2013 interview with Yahoo Music he revealed what he had learnt about being a parent.

“I think every dad probably feels this way about their kids: No matter how old they get or how young they are, you're always going to be there to fight for them, and you're always going to be there to pick them up when they fall down,” he said.

He added: “My wife and my daughter were certainly my muses for the lyrical content of that song.”

Daughtry was the fourth-place contestant on the fifth season of American Idol.
