Craig Morgan’s son, Jerry Greer, went missing Sunday afternoon. He was on Kentucky Lake with friends. The 19-year-old was tubing when there was a boat accident. His friend was rescued but a recovery effort was launched to find Greer.
Our hearts break for Craig.
Craig’s record label, Black River Entertainment, issued this statement Monday night:
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.
The family is grateful for the outpouring of support and requests prayers at this time as they privately mourn this terrible loss. Jerry is survived by parents Craig and Karen Greer, sister Aly Beaird and brother-in-law Ryan Beaird, brother Kyle Greer and fiance Chelsea Rogers and brother Wyatt Greer.
Funeral arrangements are pending.
