CRAIG STRICKLAND, lead singer of country-rock group BACKROAD ANTHEM, has been declared missing after taking a duck-hunting trip with friend CHASE MORLAND, who has been found dead, CNN reports. STRICKLAND and MORLAND took a duck-hunting trip to KAW LAKE, just north of TULSA, on SUNDAY despite severe weather conditions.
MORLAND posted a rather ominous tweet on SUNDAY: "In case we don't come back, @BackroadCRAIG and I are going right through Winter Storm Goliath to kill ducks in OKLAHOMA. #IntoTheStorm." His body was found in the lake on MONDAY, where their boat was overturned.
STRICKLAND's dog has been found alive. The search for the singer was stopped on MONDAY night because of darkness and weather but has resumed today.
