Granger Smith's Wife Reflects on the Tragic Day Son River 'Took His Last Breath,' 1 Year Later

The "Backroad Song" crooner's rep confirmed to PEOPLE on June 6, 2019, that River's death was due to a drowning accident at home.

"Amber and I made the decision to say our last goodbyes and donate his organs so that other children will be given a second chance at life," Smith wrote, sharing along with a smiley photo of himself and River.

"Our family is devastated and heartbroken, but we take solace in knowing he is with his Heavenly Father," he added.

Amber has since shared updates from home both on her Instagram account and on their family YouTube channel — the latter of which they celebrated the one-year anniversary of this past March.

"We could never have imagined all that we would go through in 1 year," she captioned a family photo on March 19. "Tremendous heartache but also tremendous joy. Thank you for following along, subscribing, commenting, sharing, praying, and just encouraging our family. We are so grateful. All our love xoxo."
