Country singer Hardy is recovering after sustaining ‘severe injuries’ in tour bus crash
Country singer Hardy asks for prayers after his tour bus was involved in an accident resulting in “serious injuries” to himself and three other passengers.
“After last night’s show, our tour bus had an accident on our way back from Bristol,” he wrote in a statement on his social media platforms on Sunday. “There were only four of us, including myself, on the bus, but we were all treated for serious injuries.”
“Our friend and bus driver needs your prayers as he is still in hospital,” Hardy continued. “His family is with him while he is being treated and we are all pulling him in and praying for him.”
The 32-year-old ‘wait in the truck’ singer said he has since been released from hospital but has been ‘ordered by doctors to recover for the next few weeks which could cost us a few gigs’.
“My team and I will keep fans updated on this as I rest over the next few days,” he explained.
“Please keep our family off the road in your prayers and I promise to keep you updated in the days to come. God bless our doctors and local and national authorities for their quick response and incredible service.”
In an update shared to his Instagram Story hours later, the Academy of Country Music’s reigning Songwriter of the Year said, “I’m alive and that’s all that matters.”
Hardy’s fiancee Caleigh shared a photo of her holding his hand, writing on her own Instagram Story, “I thank God with all my heart that I can hold his hand right now.”
“It’s truly a miracle that everyone is safe,” she added.
According to a Tennessee Highway Patrol report, Hardy and his crew were traveling west on Interstate Highway 40 on Sunday after performing at the Country Thunder music festival in Bristol, Tennessee, when the tour bus pulled off the right side of the roadway and overturned. on his left side.
It’s unclear if Hardy’s next scheduled performance, scheduled for Oct. 8 with friend and collaborator Morgan Wallen, will still take place.
