Any accident resulting in the loss of a life is tragic. When that life is a teenager with their entire life ahead of them, it can seem even more tragic. Not even celebrities, pro athletes, or country music singers are immune to this kind of tragic loss.
Country music singer Craig Morgan’s teenage son’s body was found after what authorities are calling a boating accident in Tennessee. The accident occurred in the Tennessee River basin according to Morgan’s publicist.
Cindy Hunt, who is a publicist for Morgan, said that the body of 19-year-old Jerry Greer was found by the Humphreys County Sheriff’s Department. The department recovered the body on the evening of Monday, July 11 in an area known as Kentucky Lake in northwestern Tennessee. The search had begun for the teen on Sunday after the accident.
A deputy for the sheriff’s office, Rod Edwards, said that Greer and a friend had been tubing when the accident occurred. Greer’s friend resurfaced, but Greer did not. Both were wearing life jackets.
Craig Morgan is a veteran of the Army and had country music hits such as “That’s What I Love About Sunday” and “Redneck Yacht Club.” Morgan was also known for his show on the Outdoor Channel called “Craig Morgan: All Access Outdoors.”
After receiving a request from the sheriff’s department to help search for the teen, about 50 boats came to the call. An underwater camera was used to scan parts of the river which could reach 15 feet deep at points.
