The news of Craig’s death is so shocking, it’s no wonder his fans are so distressed on Twitter. Craig had been missing, along with friend Chase Morland, 22, after heading out on a duck hunt at Kaw Lake in Kay County, Oklahoma. It was announced that Craig’s body was found within the original search area, in a place called Bear Creek Cove. The Backroad Anthem singer and friend Chase were caught in the middle of Winter Storm Goliath during their trip, and their boat capsized. It’s a tragic event that took two lives when they were far too young, and Craig’s fans are inconsolable.
So sad to hear that Craig Strickland has been found, but maybe now his family can have closure. #RIPCraig!!!

This is so terribly sad. You can feel their deep pain knowing that the artist they love, and worried about so much when he was missing. Though Chase’s body was discovered on December 28, fans held out hope that Craig was still alive after his beloved dog, Sam, was found safe and sound. In an eerie occurrence, both Craig and Chase had jokingly tweeted the morning of their expedition about not returning from their trip because of the horrible weather. Those were the last tweets they ever sent.
HollywoodLifers, our thoughts are with Craig’s loved ones during this difficult time.
