By Sheena on June 25, 2019
Granger Smith is back on the road.
On Sunday (June 23), Granger Smith played to a crowd at the Country LakeShake Festival in Chicago. It was his first show since losing his son, River Kelly Smith. He payed tribute to little River with a song called “Heaven Bound Balloons”.
The best & worst moment at @LakeShakeFest @GrangerSmith singing Heaven Bound Balloons. We could see & feel the pain in all their eyes, but when G pulled out McQueen? Gut wrenching! We love you Granger! Thank you for being you. You’re stronger than you know. #LiveLikeRiv pic.twitter.com/UORnaSgEnR

The Smith family tragically lost their youngest son, River, June 6. He was only 3-years-old.
Granger Smith’s wife, Amber, and their older children, London and Lincoln, have joined Smith on tour where they will travel as a family.
The Smith Family has raised over $200,000 for the Dell Children’s Medical Center in River’s name. A “River Smith Tribute T-Shirt” is available through “YeeYee Apparel”. All proceeds from the sale of the shirt will be donated to the hospital.
