NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Country singer Granger Smith says that his youngest son, River Kelly Smith, has died after an undisclosed accident.

In a statement put out Thursday through his label, Smith said that after doctors were unable to revive the 3-year-old, the family decided to donate his organs to other children.

Smith says that the family was heartbroken, but took solace that River was with God.

The family asked that donations be made to Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas.

Smith, who is signed to Broken Bow Records, has released songs “If The Boot Fits,” ″Backroad Song” and “Happens Like That.”

He and his wife, Amber, also have another son and a daughter.

The family is asking that in lieu of flowers or gifts, donations be sent to Dell Children’s Medical Center in River’s name.
