Kid Rock's personal assistant, Michael Sacha, was killed Monday in an ATV accident in the singer's property in Nashville.

Sacha's body was found on an embankment, reports the Metro Nashville Police Department.

Rock posted the following message on his website:

"I am beyond devastated to report that my personal assistant Mike Sacha passed away today in an ATV accident here in Nashville. He was a member of our family and one of the greatest young men I have ever had the pleasure to not only work with, but also to become friends with. I know I speak for us all in sharing my deepest condolences to his family. I cannot imagine how they must feel."

Rock said that his band, friends and co-workers were "devastated" and that he would "stay here with Mike until I can bring him home to his family" instead of traveling with the group.

He ended his message with, "RIP Mike. We will never forget you, my friend."
