Holding back tears, Scotty McCreery took to Instagram last night (7/22) to sing “Go Rest High On That Mountain” for a friend Yameer Greene, a 26-year-old man killed in a three-car crash in Knightdale, North Carolina on Tuesday morning (7/21).

Scotty wrote, “For Yameer ‘Wish I could see those angels faces, when they hear your sweet voice sing.'”

McCreery also posted to Twitter about his friend, who was a high school classmate, “Going to sleep with a heavy heart tonight. Gonna miss you, Yameer. So many great memories with you that I will always hold on to. Everyone who knew you, loved you. Rest easy. I cant wait to see you again one day.”

WRAL-TV shares that Greene’s Dodge Dart was struck head-on when another car crossed a barrier on I-87 in Raleigh. The driver and passenger of that car, a Honda Accord, were also killed.
