Craig Morgan’s new song, “The Father, My Son & the Holy Ghost” just went to No. 1 on the iTunes chart, thanks in part to Blake Shelton spearheading a successful viral campaign to get it there. The new tune, which Craig wrote and produced, honors his late son, Jerry Greer, who passed away after a boating accident in July 2016 at the age of 19.

Craig released a heartfelt thank-you to the fans and Blake via Instagram, saying: “Wow! I’m so completely humbled by all the support the world has shown this song.  Blake Shelton. You are an awesome friend and champion for country music. We love ya, and I cannot thank you enough. The support the entire entertainment community and music fans have shown is a testament to the love that country music embodies. This song is a God thing. My hope is that it reaches all who need to hear it. My son Jerry’s work on earth did not end with his passing. THANK YOU, everyone.”

Blake took to Twitter to help “The Father, My Son & the Holy Ghost” reach No. 1 on the iTunes Country chart, and mentioned Craig’s song in more than 20 tweets. He also got some of his famous friends involved via Twitter, including Kelly Clarkson, Ellen DeGeneres, Carson Daly, Meghan Trainor and more.
