Craig Morgan has released a new statement regarding the death of his son, Jerry Greer, earlier this month.  Craig said, “The loss of our son Jerry is the hardest thing we have ever had to endure as a family.  Karen and I are so grateful for all of the wonderful people who have shown us unwavering support during this difficult time.”  Craig also thanked sheriff and fire departments, the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, and other agencies, volunteers, friends and family who helped in the search and showed support.  Morgan’s son disappeared after a tubing accident on Tennessee’s Kentucky Lake. His body was recovered more than 24 hours later.

Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard says he’s getting back to the basics and taking a break from social media indefinitely.  Tyler posted a message on his personal Instagram page that said, “I spend way too much of my valuable time worrying about my next post or how many comments or likes I got.  I love my fans and promise I’m not gone forever, but I’m taking some time to refocus on my relationships, the Lord, my marriage, my family, and my music. Maybe I’ll even learn a new instrument instead of learning how to snap chat.”

Charlie Daniels is adding one of the hottest concert draws around to his 80th Birthday Volunteer Jam this fall in Nashville. Chris Stapleton will join the all-star lineup, which already includes Kid Rock and Larry the Cable Guy, with more artists to be revealed in the future.  Tickets are on sale now for the show November 30 at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. Part of the proceeds will go to Charlie’s non-profit, The Journey Home Project, which helps veterans re-adjust to life after their service.
