KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KFTK) — Country singer Granger Smith announced Thursday the death of his 3-year-old son after a "tragic accident."

He was scheduled to appear in concert in Kansas City tonight, however the show has since been canceled. Details about the accident have not been released.

Smith said in a Facebook post this afternoon that he and his wife decided to donate River Kelly Smith's organs "so that other children will be given a second chance at life."

In lieu of flowers or gifts, the family requests donations in River's name be sent to Dell Children’s Medical Center in Austin, Texas.
