It's a sad and heartbreaking day for Eddie Montgomery of Montgomery Gentry, who lost his son on Sunday morning (Sept. 27).

Hunter, Montgomery's 19-year-old son -- the youngest of Montgomery’s four children with his ex-wife, Tracy -- was involved in a serious, though unspecified, accident. Before his passing, he was placed on life support at a Kentucky hospital.

“My son Hunter went to heaven today,” Montgomery says in a statement. “I appreciate all your prayers and love and thank you for giving us privacy as we grieve and say goodbye.”

Funeral arrangements for the young man are pending as the family navigates this difficult time.
