Craig Strickland, lead singer of the Alabama based country band Backroad Anthem, has been found dead on the shoreline of Kaw Lake by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol. 

Strickland and his friend, Chase Morland were reported missing a week ago after they embarked on a hunting trip Sunday, December 27th during winter storm Goliath.

Craig’s wife, Helen took to Instagram to share the news of Craig’s death. 

 

Craig was found today. We can finally rest knowing that he is at Home in Heaven with his Father. The night of the accident he had fought his way out of the water and up a hill before the stages of hypothermia set in. He experienced no pain in his final moments and simply felt like he was falling asleep. They found him lying in the shape of a cross looking up to his Father. Thank you to every single person who prayed for him and our family during this time. There was not a more peaceful way for him to go into the arms of our Lord, and I know your prayers had a role in making that happen. I know he saw Jesus at that moment when he laid down and walked arm in arm with Him into a better Everlasting Life. I love you with all my heart Craig Michael. #craigstrickland
