PUT-IN-BAY, Ohio (WTVG) - Country music star Keith Urban’s tour production manager has died after falling from a stage at Bash on the Bay.

72-year-old Randy “Baja” Fletcher died on Aug. 27 a day after falling on the set while preparing for the Keith Urban performance at Put-in-Bay, according to the Associated Press.

Fletcher made a career of touring over the last five decades, working with artists including ZZ Top, Randy Travis, Brooks & Dunn, and more. He became the Country Music Association’s first Touring Lifetime Achievement Award winner in 2017.
