As for the tag of @leewright_hairstylist and @stylehousesalon that’s who she trusts her hair to. The stylist and salon are based in Nashville.

“She had been going with a darker blond the last six months or so, closer to her natural color,” Lee told People. “She sat down in the chair yesterday and we both said, ‘Let’s go really blond again.’ She loved it — I spun her around, like, ‘You’re back!’”

The Outer Banks Voice reports a car traveling westbound on U.S. 158 from Kitty Hawk, N.C. stopped on the Wright Memorial Bridge in the early morning hours of August 16 after its T-top flew off. The driver tried to remove the T-top from the road, and John, who was driving an SUV and pulling a trailer with his equipment, struck the car from behind.

The driver either fell or jumped from the bridge into the water below, and was not harmed. His passenger was not as fortunate and died at the scene. Two of John’s band members were transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Investigators say neither speed nor alcohol were factors in the crash, and no charges have been filed.
