Truett Foster McKeehan Death – Tobymac Son Death

Foster McKeehan died on Wednesday, October 23, 2019, at a home in the 3000 block of Harlin Drive. The home is located seven miles south of Nashville. Paramedics were called to the home at around 11 a.m. on October 23 after a friend found McKeehan unresponsive. The 911 caller said that McKeehan had suffered from a cardiac arrest.

“Truett did pass away at home in the Nashville area sometime Tuesday night or Wednesday morning,” a representative for TobyMac confirmed in a statement issued Thursday morning to Primal Information. The Davidson County Medical Examiner’s office confirmed he died Wednesday.

TobyMac paid tribute to his late son Truett McKeehan, in a statement on Instagram. He wrote in the statement:

“Truett Foster Mckeehan had joy that took the room when he entered. He was a magnetic son and brother and friend. If you met him, you knew him, you remembered him. His smile, his laugh, the encouragement he offered with words or even without. He had an untamable grand personality and dreams to match. And he hated being put in a box.

“He expressed himself through the music he made. And by made I mean, written, recorded, produced, mixed, and designed the art. All of it. A true artist. His first show was a week ago, and it was nothing short of electric. Everyone felt it, everyone knew it. He could’ve easily taken the easy route and put music out when he was 12, 14, 16, even 18, but he always said he wanted to live some life and have something to say before he did it. He didn’t want to be a child star, he wanted to be a man with scars and a story to tell. I always admired, respected and encouraged that stand.

“Truett always had a soft spot for God. The Bible moved him. His heart was warm to the things of his King. He was by no means a cookie cutter Christian but give me a believer who fights to keep believing. Give me a broken man who recognizes his need for a Savior every time. That’s who Truett was and how he should be remembered.

“My last moment with Truett in person was at his first show this past Thursday at the Factory in Franklin, Tennessee. I had to leave the next morning very early to fly and start our Canadian tour. As I stood in the audience and watched my son bring joy to a room, I was as proud as a “pop” (as tru called me) could be. It was the culminating moment of a dream that he had since he was 12. It couldn’t have been sweeter. Our music, and what we say lyrically couldn’t be more different, but the outcome was much the same… offering a room full of people a few minutes of joy in a crazy world. Our last text exchange is shared above (swipe). My wife and I would want the world to know this…

“We don’t follow God because we have some sort of under-the-table deal with Him, like, we’ll follow you if you bless us. We follow God because we love Him. It’s our honor. He is the God of the hills and the valleys. And He is beautiful above all things.”

TobyMac recently wrote the song “Scars” after his eldest son left home to pursue his dreams. “When life cuts so deep try and remember, you are not alone, we’ve all been there, scars come with livin’,” Tobymac Scars lyrics say. “You are not alone, we’ve all been there. So lift your head, lift your head, lift your head to where your help comes from.”

“He moved to L.A. and he’s making music and he’s doing his thing,” TobyMac told The Tennessean in an October 2018 Interview. “But to watch him go through that, and watch him get bruised, it’s not easy. So that’s one of the ways life has changed. In that song, I just want him to know he’s not alone.”

In another interview regarding the song “Scars”, TobyMac said, “So to see them go out there and do this real world it’s painful. I wrote this one for my boy. I wanted to let him know that I’m here for him and God is there for him. So lift your head my son to where your help comes from.”

In September 2018, Mac told Billboard Magazine regarding “Scars,” “I had a few people in mind when I wrote it, but subconsciously I started focusing on Truett, my firstborn son, talking to him a little about what life is throwing at him. I wanted him to know that he’s not alone when the world might get the best of him from time to time. When he looks up and he’s got some scars, I wanted him to know that we all face those things and that he’s not alone in it.”

On September 5, 2018, TobyMac celebrated Truett Foster McKeehan’s birthday on Instagram. He wrote, “Happy birthday first son, big brother, young man, gifted artist, lover of God, life of the party, friend to all, creative soul, apple of my eye.”
