The first anniversary of HARDY's tour bus crash that seriously injured HARDY and three other people aboard just passed, and the country singer turned to Instagram to share that he's suffering severe anxiety due to the accident.
"I need to be honest with everyone for a second," he wrote, explaining that anxiety had plagued him since the wreck but that in the last two weeks, it had "taken control of my life."
HARDY said the anxiety had triggered multiple panic attacks that have landed him in the hospital.
"I need a moment to focus on me and to make myself better for my wife, family, and you the fans," he said.
As a result, HARDY canceled his concerts on October 5 and 7 and is issuing refunds at the point of purchase.
"My plan is to be back and focused on Oct. 12," he wrote. "Thank you for understanding, see you soon."
HARDY's photographer/videographer Tanner Gallagher revealed that when the tour bus ran off the highway at approximately 70 mph and flipped into the woods, everyone on board was knocked unconscious.
"Within what felt like 3 seconds, our bodies were thrown across the room," he shared. "By the grace of God, we all survived. My injuries included a shattered foot, a punctured lung, four broken ribs, and a fractured vertebrae in my neck."
Gallagher was told numerous times by doctors that it was a miracle everyone survived.
"That'll make you think," he said. "I think about the times that I've spent worrying, stressed, upset, been less present, or simply took for granted, and it kills me. I think about all the people in my life, family, friends, co-workers, etc. and wished that I could have spent more time with them or somehow made them feel better in moments with something as simple and little as a compliment. Most of all, I think about perspective, in that it's so easy for us to lose sight of all of the things we have."
Physically, HARDY fully recovered and, about three months later, flung himself into the wrestling ring.
HARDY jumped over the ropes at WWE Raw and cracked wrestler Joseph Yokozuna Fatu - professionally known as Solo Sikoa - across the back with an acoustic guitar. The instrument splintered, but the wrestler didn't flinch as he turned his wild eyes to confront HARDY, who held his hands up and backed away.
HARDY is in the midst of his mockingbird & THE CROW Fall Tour now.
