A rep for TobyMac, whose real name is Toby McKeehan, also revealed that Truett died at his Nashville home.

"Toby was traveling back from Canada and did not get home to be with his family until after midnight last night so there is no statement. We just ask that everyone please be respectful of their privacy during this time and allow them to grieve their loss," the singer's rep said.

The young man was an aspiring rapper. He went by the names Truett Foster, TRU, Shiloh and truDog online and collaborated with his father on a few tracks.

TobyMac was on tour in Canada but left to spend time with his wife, Amanda, and other children, twins Moses and Marlee, Leo, and Judah.
