Alan Jackson has broken his silence in the weeks since the unexpected death of his son-in-law, Ben Selecman. The 28-year-old succumbed to head injuries he suffered in a fall earlier this month.

Alan posted a picture of himself and Selecman enjoying a boat ride writing, “It's with grateful hearts that Denise and I want to thank our friends and fans for the outpouring of love and prayers during the hospitalization and ultimate passing of our son in law, Ben Selecman. Ben was a southern boy who loved hunting and fishing and just being outdoors. His childlike enthusiasm for each new day was contagious to everyone around him. He was the godly young man that Denise had always prayed for for Mattie. Ben we love you. Rest In Peace until we see you again..”

Mattie is Alan's oldest daughter. She and Selecman tied the knot last October.
