Country singer Craig Strickland found dead at 29

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol confirmed that they recovered the body of 29-year-old country singer Craig Strickland.

Strickland, along with his friend Chase Morland, disappeared during a duck hunting trip during the winter storm Goliath. After a period of the pair’s family and friends not hearing from them, a search party was launched to help find them.

Morland’s body was discovered on Monday, as well as their boat.

Strickland’s family and friends were hopeful that he would still be alive, because his beloved black lab, Sam, who also joined the pair on the hunting trip, was found safe and sound.

Strickland was the singer for the country rock band Backroad Anthem.
