Chris Daughtry is flying home from his concert tour to be with his family following the sudden death of his stepdaughter, Hannah Price.

The 25-year-old was found dead in her Fentress County home Friday by local Tennessee police, PEOPLE confirms.

"Due to the unexpected death of Chris and Deanna Daughtry's daughter, Hannah, all currently scheduled shows for the coming week for Daughtry have been postponed," a rep for the singer said in a statement to PEOPLE on Friday.

The statement continued: "The Daughtry family thanks you for your understanding and respectfully asks for privacy during this very difficult time. Further details will be made available at a later date. The investigation into this tragic death is still ongoing."

The Knoxville Medical Examiners Office is still investigating her death.

Price, as well as her sibling Rosa, 23, are Deanna's children from a previous relationship. Chris, 41, and Deanna, 48 — who met in 2000 — also share twins Adalynn Rose and Noah James, 10, and raise Liam, 7.

Daughry and his band released their first album in November 2006 after the singer came in fourth place on the fifth season of American Idol. He has been nominated for four Grammys.

The Dearly Beloved is the band's sixth studio album. It was released on Sept. 17 alongside the single "Lioness."
