We can't even imagine what Craig Morgan and his family are going through right now.
As we've reported, the country singer's 19-year-old son Jerry Greer was found dead in the water after a tubing accident with friends on Kentucky Lake earlier this month. So incredibly sad.
Speaking in public for the first time on the tragedy, the International Harvester artist — who has canceled his remaining July shows — penned a heartfelt message of gratitude and remembrance on behalf of him and his wife, Karen Greer.

On Sunday, Jerry and another teenager were apparently tubing on the Tennessee River near Kentucky Lake when they both fell in the water. Though Greer was wearing a life jacket, he never resurfaced. Shortly after, Jerry was reported missing in the late afternoon at which point a crew of emergency responders hit the scene.
All hope was lost though when the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency confirmed late Monday that the teenager's body had been recovered.
One of Morgan's reps confirmed the sad news in a statement saying:
