Granger Smith’S Son Dies In Tragic Accident:
Heart broken Granger Smith wrote in social media Thursday, “I have to deliver unthinkable news. We’ve lost our youngest son, River Kelly Smith. Following a tragic accident, and despite doctor’s best efforts, he was unable to be revived. Amber and I made the decision to say our last goodbyes and donate his organs so that other children will be given a second chance at life. Our family is devastated and heartbroken, but we take solace in knowing he is with his Heavenly Father. Riv was special. Everyone that met him knew that immediately. The joy he brought to our lives cannot be expressed and his light will be forever in our hearts. If there are words to say more, I cannot find them in this moment. Love the ones close to you. There has never been a more difficult moment for us than this.
In lieu of flowers or gifts, please send donations to Dell Children’s Medical Center in River’s name. The doctors, nurses and staff have been incredible.”
Granger Smith’s 3 years old son River Kelly Smith’s tragic death was because of a drowning accident at home.

Morgan Miller wrote, “Did you know that for the FIRST. TIME. EVER. Florida had ZERO drownings for the months of February and March?! Talk about a “WHOA” moment for my family, friends and so many others who have lost their babies to this epidemic. The urgency behind this conversation has started and I am so proud of the steps we are all taking to create this necessary change. #EmmyandLevi you two continue to move mountains and are missed beyond measure.”
Morgan Miller also wrote, “I often find myself wanting to reach into videos and pictures and just pull you out. Searching for ways to bring you back so our family is whole again. So our hearts are whole again. We miss you so much, my love.
Parents, Grandparents, Siblings, Aunts and Uncles, EVERYONE….Please don’t rely on the visual stimulant of water to create your awareness/sense of urgency. Understand that almost 70% of drownings occur when your children are not expected to be near the water. When you think they are in the playroom or on the sofa watching tv. Always be aware of water and place as many barriers between your child and those bodies of water as possible (locks, door alarms, pool fences). None of us are immune to this devastatingly life changing statistic. It can happen so fast and forever change your world.”
Smith is most known for his hit songs “If the Boot Fits” and “Backroad Song.” The BBR Music Group Recording artist also portrays the character Earl Dibbles, Jr., a good old country boy.
