The Search Continues for Craig Morgan’s Son After Boating Accident on Kentucky Lake

The Search Continues for Craig Morgan’s Son After Boating Accident on Kentucky Lake

A search is underway for a missing teen along the Tennessee River and Kentucky Lake after a tubing accident on Sunday, July 10.

The missing man is Jerry Greer, 19, the son of country singer Craig Morgan and his wife Karen Greer.

According to reports, two teens were tubing on Kentucky Lake near Masons Boat Dock (about 100 miles west of Nashville) when they fell into the water. Jerry, who was wearing a life jacket, never resurfaced.

The search began at 4 p.m. on Sunday and continued through the night. A full-scale search is currently underway. Investigators from multiple agencies are aiding in the search, including more than 20 boats and a helicopter. Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency is using military-grade SONAR, which is capable of seeing clearly underwater. The search has been hampered by wind, choppy water and rain.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Morgan family at this time.

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
