Country Stars React To The Death Of Craig Morgan’s Son | Country Music Videos


Monday evening (July 11), the body of Jerry Greer, son of country singer Craig Morgan, was found in Kentucky Lake after search and rescue teams began looking for him Sunday at 4pm.

He was thrown from an inner tube he was riding with another teen and was said to be wearing a life jacket. 

Humphreys County Sheriff Chris Davis told reporters, “It was just as simple as hitting a wave and turning over and not coming back up.”

Morgan’s record label, Black River Entertainment, confirmed the tragic news with a statement that reads:

It is with deep sadness that I am confirming the passing of Jerry Greer (19), son of country music entertainer Craig Morgan and wife Karen Greer. The Humphreys County (TN) Sheriff’s Department recovered his body this evening after a search that began Sunday following a boating accident on Kentucky Lake in Tennessee. A 2016 graduate of Dickson County High School, Jerry planned to play football for Marshall University in the fall.”

Craig Morgan has made quite a few friends over his 16-year country music career. Now, more than ever, he needs their prayers and support. 

Country singers from Brad Paisley to Mickey Guyton to Neal McCoy have been sending Morgan and his family their condolences.

According to Black River Entertainment’s statement, Jerry is survived by “parents Craig and Karen Greer, sister Aly Beaird and brother-in-law Ryan Beaird, brother Kyle Greer and fiancé Chelsea Rogers and brother Wyatt Greer.”

We can’t imagine what Morgan and his family are going through right now. The loss of a child is a pain no parent should ever feel.  Our prayers go out to Craig Morgan and his family during this difficult time.

Funeral arrangements are pending.
