I was shocked to hear the devastating news that Granger Smith's 3-year-old son, River, had passed away.
As we learn more about the tragic death, we now know that River drowned in the family's backyard pool. You may recognize River; he appeared in his dad's music videos and on the family's popular YouTube channel, The Smiths. The singer broke the heartbreaking news on Instagram.
River's death comes almost exactly a year after Olympic skier Bode Miller's little girl, Emmy, drowned in a neighbor's pool. The Millers are reaching out to the Smiths, offering love and support.
The Smiths donated River's organs to those in need, in the hopes that his legacy will go on by helping another child to live.
