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 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.
