"American Idol" fans feared the death of country singer Josh Gracin after what looked like a suicide note was posted on his Facebook page Thursday.

Billboard.com reported that fans reacted immediately, spreading the word on social media, asking what should be done.

Luckily, someone reportedly called the cops, and they showed up to Gracin's house. They soon confirmed that he had not committed suicide.

It remains unclear how or why the note appeared, but Gracin's manager, Amy, took to Twitter and Facebook just hours after the initial post to let fans know that Gracin was OK, and with family.



 


Just a few hours later, it was announced that Gracin's scheduled appearance at Friday's "Live on the Levee" show in Charleston, West Virginia, had been canceled. Trent Tomlinson was announced as his replacement.

Gracin's singing career began with his fourth-place finish on "American Idol" in 2003. According to The Hollywood Reporter, "his backstory as a Marine who loved to sing helped endear him to millions."

Altogether, he's charted 11 singles on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart, with a number one hit, "Nothin' to Lose," in 2005.

Michael Johns, another "Idol" alum, died unexpectedly in early August at the age of 35. An initial autopsy proved inconclusive as to the cause of death, but a blood clot is suspected.
