Vale Glen Hannah

Australian country musician and ABC Saturday Night Country producer, Glen Hannah, has tragically died.

Hannah, who was married to singer/songwriter and radio presenter Felicity Urquhart, passed away this week, leaving behind his wife and their two daughters, Tia and Ellie.

Tamworth’s Golden Guitar Awards’ Musician of the Year in 2017, the award-winning musician had worked with some of Australia’s biggest country music artists Kasey Chambers, Lee Kernaghan and John Williamson.

Following the tragedy, Urquhart farewelled Hannah in a heartbreaking Facebook post.

“Today we said goodbye to my darling Glen.
The saddest day of my life, broken beyond words and not sure how to do this alone.
He touched so many lives in the most incredible way and now lives on in our beautiful girls.
Thank you for all the love and support from our dearest friends and family”

Hannah committed suicide. Felicity Urquhart has taken some time off air to grieve and has also spoken out as a suicide prevention ambassador.
