NASHVILLE T.N. -- Authorities say a bar owner in Nashville told police he shot a country music singer in self-defense at his club.

Pit and Barrel owner Chris Ferrell says he got into an argument with musician Wayne Mills, who was smoking a cigarette in a no-smoking area around 5 a.m. Saturday after the bar had closed.

The Tennessean reports Mills died at a hospital. Police are looking into Ferrell's claim of self-defense.

Michael Scott, who was among a group of friends with Mills, told WSMV-TV they attended a George Jones tribute concert Friday night and then went drinking at a couple of bars before the Pit and Barrel.

Mills, a native of Arab, Ala., toured with the Wayne Mills Band, which has played college towns for more than 15 years.
