Jerry Greer, the son of country singer Craig Morgan, was found dead on Monday after a boating accident on Kentucky Lake in Tennessee.
Greer and another man — both were both wearing life jackets — were riding an inner tube pulled by a boat when they were thrown from their raft. Greer did not resurface.
The Humphreys County Sheriff’s Department in Tennessee recovered the 19-year-old’s body Monday evening after a search of the lake that began on Sunday after the accident, according to Us Weekly.
About 20 to 30 boats began searching for Greer about 4 p.m. Sunday, and the Associated Press said the number soon rose to nearly 50.
In June, the “Almost Home” singer shared with Fox News his thoughts on parenting and the advice that he gives his children daily.
“Every day my wife and I understand that we are building young men and women. They’re going to take over for us as citizens,” he said at the time. “[I tell them to] live. Enjoy your life because nothing is guaranteed and every day is a blessing.”
