The heartfelt Instagram post is his first in some time...

Granger Smith took to Instagram this weekend to update fans on his family's status since the tragic death of his 3-year-old son River.

 “We all know that social media has become a mask…a highlight reel per say, that we can hide behind and appear to promote our best moments of our best days. Eh…that stuff doesn’t matter.”

River tragically died in a drowning accident at home, in June this year. Check out the rest of Granger's emotional post below, and let us know what you think.

I haven’t said much on socials lately. It’s not that I don’t have anything to say, it’s more that most things just don’t seem important enough to share. We all know that social media has become a mask...a highlight reel per say, that we can hide behind and appear to promote our best moments of our best days. Eh...that stuff doesn’t matter. That’s why I enjoy continuing The Smiths channel on YouTube because I can turn on the camera and talk like we’re just friends in the same room. No mask. Amber has continued to post on her socials and I’m blown away by her ability to be so real, raw and engaging in her captions and pictures. Once upon a time I had the way with words in our relationship, but now I’m letting her speak for us both. We certainly see the world with our masks off now. Each night I find myself looking out at faces in our crowd and thinking about all the different stories...all the hidden struggles. We need each other. . Sorry for the random ranting. Needless to say, I still have to pay bills, promote a tour and promote a lifestyle brand/ apparel line. And I’ll get back to talking about that one day. (I love Yee Yee Apparel too much not to.) All that said, know this: Life is a storm. Realizing that makes it easier to be grateful for the rays of sunshine.
