Taking to Instagram to share a series of heartwarming photos through the years, Miranda captioned her post: "Heavy heart post. Last night I lost one of my most treasured friends, bandmates and road family members, Scotty Wray."

"We met in 2001 in Greenville Texas. I was 17," Miranda continued. "That was the beginning of our journey together. We went through so much life together on and off the stage. We wrote songs, played gig after gig, fought, cried, laughed and even got matching arrow tattoos after we made it out of some rough patches together."

"Heaven is lucky cause that honky tonk band up there just gained another guitar pickin angel. Rest easy my love."
