Mike Ryan's Tour Bus Unexpectedly Bursts Into Flames: "No One Hurt"

Despite the tour bus fire, Mike Ryan will continue with his slated show dates this weekend.

Country newcomer Mike Ryan's tour bus unexpectedly went up into flames. The "Jacket On" singer confirmed no one was hurt in the incident or on board when the fire started. 

The emerging artist did not reveal the exact day he lost the bus but turned to social media to share a string of photos of the devastating aftermath. 

Although the vocalist did not disclose what sparked the fire, the images show the back of the bus received the most damage. 

"There isn't much good news here, but at least no one was on the bus when it happened," he wrote on Instagram. "No one hurt 🙏 We'll replace what was lost and keep on chuggin' along." 

He continued to share that his most prized possession made it out in great shape. 

"At least my @opry sign made it 🙌 ( swipe left) We'll see y'all all in Mississippi this weekend," he added with optimism. 

In between the debris and rubble, country music fans will see Ryan's Grand Ole Opry parking sign in the corner unharmed. 

Core members of the country community rushed to the comments to show their endless support. 

"Damnit, buddy!! So glad everyone is ok!! Holler and let us know how we can help!" said Wade Bowen. "Gah damn, dude! Glad nobody got hurt!" uttered Parker McCollum. "Damn, man, glad y'all are safe," added Kameron Marlowe. 

Unfortunately, the country mainstay is not the only artist that got into a tour bus predicament in 2022. In early October, HARDY and three others were involved in a crash that left them hospitalized. All four passengers were treated for "significant injuries." Country hitmaker John Michael Montgomery broke his ribs in September during an accident on a Tennessee highway, heading to a show in North Carolina. 

Despite the unfortunate scenario, Ryan clarified that he would continue with his scheduled dates. The singer-songwriter is slated to perform in Hattiesburg, MS, on Dec. 2 and Starkville, MS, on  Dec. 3. The fast-rising star will be ringing in the new year at Silver Saloon in Texas on Dec. 31 and already has a show lined up for late January. 

Ryan previously released his 13-song collection "Longcut," which he believes is his "best record" yet. The tracklist includes fan favorites "Die Runnin'," "Get Away with Anything," "Won't Slow Down," "Can Down," and more.
