Scotty McCreery is paying tribute to a friend who was killed this week in a car accident.
On Wednesday, the “American Idol” winner posted a video on Instagram, singing a song honouring his close friend Yameer Greene, who lost his life in a car crash on Tuesday. Greene was just 26.
McCreery honoured his friend with a performance of Vince Gill’s “Go Rest High On That Mountain” after letting his fans know via Twitter that Yameer had passed.
“So many great memories with you that I will always hold onto,” he wrote.
Going to sleep with a heavy heart tonight. Gonna miss you, Yameer. So many great memories with you that I will always hold on to. Everyone who knew you, loved you. Rest easy. I cant wait to see you again one day.
