The singer is no stranger to tragedy. In December of 2014, she was diagnosed with a brain tumor that nearly destroyed her career.
Abby graduated from Nebraska Hixon-Lied college in 2015, where she majored in theatre performance. Shortly after, in 2016, she went to Nashville to record her first album Cool.
Back in March, Abby spoke to her local news station — News Channel Nebraska — and told them of her plans to permanently move to Nashville in August to focus on her music career full time.
"Just to immerse myself in that love of music and be around and write every day is kind of where I want to be," Abby said. "That's what everyone says, you just have got to dive on in, and that's what I'm going to do."
Abby also had hometown performances scheduled next weekend.
Police tell RadarOnline.com the incident is still under investigation.
