NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A spokeswoman for Eddie Montgomery, one-half of the country duo Montgomery Gentry, says the singer has lost his 19-year-old son.

Spokeswoman Alicia Jones said in a statement that Montgomery’s son, Hunter, died Sunday after an accident that had him on life support in a Kentucky hospital. Jones told The Associated Press in an email the details of what happened are being withheld “until the family is ready to release further information.”

Montgomery said in the statement that he appreciated the prayers from fans and for “giving us privacy as we grieve and say goodbye.”

Montgomery Gentry has had hits including “Something to Be Proud Of,” ”My Town” and “Gone.” The duo won CMA Vocal Duo of the Year at the Country Music Association’s awards in 2000.
