According to reports, Wayne Mills, 44, lead singer of The Wayne Mills Band, got into an altercation with Chris Ferrell, owner of the Pit and Barrel Bar on Second Avenue in Nashville, after Mills allegedly lit up a cigarette in the non-smoking part of the bar. That's when Ferrell allegedly shot Mills, who later died at a Nashville hospital. The two were reportedly good friends.
