Fans Of Country Singer Craig Strickland Can Pay Tribute To The Late Star When His Memorial Service Is Live-streamed On The Web Next Week (Beg11jan16).
The 29-year-old Backroad Anthem singer and his friend Chase Morland went on a hunting trip during winter storm Goliath in late December (15), and their bodies were later found by a police search party in Oklahoma.
On 12 January (16), Strickland will be honoured with a memorial service at the Cross Church Pinnacle Hills Campus in Rogers, Arkansas, and for those unable to attend, a live webcast will take place on the church's website.
Craig's wife Helen shared the news on Instagram, adding, "I love you all, thank you for loving my husband."
The remaining members of Backroad Anthem have pledged to stay together during this difficult time, and insist they have no plans of splitting up following their bandmate's tragic death.
In fact, they've added another date to their current U.S. tour, writing on Facebook, "Due to the overwhelming support and sold out show on Jan 16th, we have scheduled another show on Jan 17th in honor of Craig Strickland at George's Majestic Lounge (in Arkansas)... We could never replace Craig, but we know he would want us to continue."
The decision to live stream Strickland's memorial service comes as late rock legend Lemmy, who died of cancer on 28 December (15), is set to have his ceremony beamed to fans around the world when it takes place at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles on Saturday (09Jan16).
