Our hearts are still with Granger Smith and his family as we learned last week the tragic news that swept the country music community, the sudden death of Granger Smith’s 3 year old son River.

Now, a week later, in a tribute to his late son, Granger and his wife have released a new t-shirt to raise money for Dell Children’s Medical Center, where his son was cared for before his death.

At the time of the accident, Granger released a statement sharing the “unthinkable” news with fans on Instagram.

“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,” Granger wrote. “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.”

The River Smith Tribute Shirt is on sale now and can be purchased in honor of Granger’s young son.

“100% of the proceeds from this shirt will go to Dell Childrens Medical Center in honor of River Kelly Smith. River was Granger and Amber Smith’s youngest son who tragically passed away on June 6, 2019. He was cared for by the wonderful staff at Dell Childrens before he passed away.  This shirt has a Yee Yee Excavator on it (Riv’s favorite thing to do was watch excavators scoop up dirt) and is red- Riv’s favorite color.”

Granger, your family is forever in our hearts and prayers.
