Watch Craig Morgan Honor Late Son During Opry Performance of “The Father, My Son & the Holy Ghost”

Craig Morgan shared a touching ode to his late son, Jerry Greer, with the release of “The Father, My Son and the Holy Ghost” on Aug. 30. The new tune, which Craig penned and produced, honors Jerry, who passed away after a boating accident in July 2016 at the age of 19.

“As difficult as this song was to write and as difficult as it is to sing, it gives me strength in my faith in God,” says Craig via Twitter. “My hope is it does the same for others.”

Before releasing the song, Craig performed the toughing tribute on the Grand Ole Opry stage, most notably on the night of Luke Combs’ induction on July 16

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
