Country singer/songwriter HARDY and three of his band and crew were involved in a bus accident Saturday night that left the men significantly injured, according to a post on HARDY’s social media accounts.
HARDY, who recently released “Stay in the Truck” with Lainey Wilson, wrote that they were traveling home following a concert when the accident occurred and that while there were only four of them on the bus, all of them were hurt.
While HARDY has been released from the hospital, he said that his bus driver still “needs prayers.”
“His family is with him while he is being treated,” HARDY said. “We are all pulling and praying for him.”
HARDY said that even though he’s been released from the hospital, he’s been ordered by doctors to recover for the next couple of weeks. His recuperation could force him to miss a couple of shows. He said he and his team will keep fans updated as he rests in the coming days.
“Please keep our road family in your prayers, and I promise to keep you updated in the days that follow,” he said. “God bless our medics and our local and state officials for their quick response and incredible service.”
HARDY’s fellow country artists including Miranda Lambert, Jon Pardi, Karen Fairchild from Little Big Town and Dan Smyers from Dan + Shay were among the first to offer their support.
“Sorry to hear this, bud,” Pardi wrote. “That’s scary stuff. Prayers up! Get some rest.”
HARDY has written 12 No. 1 hits since 2018, including his chart-topper “One Beer” featuring Lauren Alaina and Devin Dawson and the Dierks Bentley, Breland collaboration “Beers On Me.”
HARDY’s upcoming dates include Oct. 8 at Globe Life Field with Morgan Wallen in Arlington, Texas.
