Singer Wayne Mills, who was known for his “outlaw” country music, was fatally shot Saturday night in a Nashville bar.

Chris Ferrell, a friend of Mills’ who owned the bar, told police he shot Mills in self-defense, CNN reports. Police say the two men were in the closed bar with a few others who left when they began to argue. Mills died of a gunshot wound to the head.

Mills led the Wayne Mills band, and had been working on his seventh album.
