On Sunday, September 15, Granger, 40, explained why he has not been very active on social media over the last few months.
"I haven’t said much on socials lately. It’s not that I don’t have anything to say, it’s more that most things just don’t seem important enough to share," the singer wrote on Instagram.
"We all know that social media has become a mask...a highlight reel per say, that we can hide behind and appear to promote our best moments of our best days," he continued. "That stuff doesn’t matter."
As OK! readers know, Granger and Amber, 37, revealed in June that their youngest son River had passed away on June 6 after drowning at home “despite doctor’s best efforts, he was unable to be revived.” The little boy's funeral was on June 11.
"That’s why I enjoy continuing The Smiths channel on YouTube because I can turn on the camera and talk like we’re just friends in the same room," Granger explained. "No mask."
"Amber has continued to post on her socials and I’m blown away by her ability to be so real, raw and engaging in her captions and pictures," he said of Amber, who he married in 2010. "Once upon a time I had the way with words in our relationship, but now I’m letting her speak for us both."
"We certainly see the world with our masks off now," the father-of-three said. "Each night I find myself looking out at faces in our crowd and thinking about all the different stories...all the hidden struggles. We need each other."
"Needless to say, I still have to pay bills, promote a tour and promote a lifestyle brand/ apparel line. And I’ll get back to talking about that one day," he said of his return back to social media.
"All that said, know this...life is a storm. Realizing that makes it easier to be grateful for the rays of sunshine," he concluded.
Since River's death, Amber has been active on social media while she grieves. She talked about the criticism she was receiving for being online so soon after her son's passing at the end of June and said, "If our message helps just one other family, then it’s worth it."
The couple also shares a daughter London, 7, and another son Lincoln, 5.
