Singer-songwriter HARDY, whose full name is Michael Wilson Hardy, was hospitalised with ‘significant injuries’ after the tour bus he was travelling in flipped over early Sunday, October 2nd.

According to a preliminary report from the Tennessee Highway Patrol, the overturned tour bus crash occurred around 2.30am on Interstate 40 West. The driver, James Hudson, was wearing a seatbelt, according to the report, which also notes that none of the passengers were. 

He wrote on social media, "Following last night’s show, our tour bus was in an accident on our way home from Bristol. There were just four of us, including myself, on the bus, however we were all treated for significant injuries. Our friend, and bus driver needs your prayers as he is still in the hospital. His family is with him while he is being treated and we’re all pulling and praying for him."

"I’ve been released from the hospital, but ordered by doctors to recover for the next few weeks which may cost us at a couple of shows,” HARDY continued. “My team and I will keep the fans updated on that as I rest in the coming days. Please keep our road family in your prayers and I promise to keep you updated in the days to follow. God bless our medics and local and state officials for their quick response and incredible service."

On Instagram, HARDY received well wishes from fellow country music artists.

"Damn bud, scary stuff. Hope y'all get healed up," Luke Combs wrote in the comments section. Thomas Rhett added, "Dang man. Prayers of healing for you and your crew."

Chris Lane, Jordan Davis, Raelynn, and Jake Owen also wrote that they were sending positive vibes to the singer with Miranda Lambert writing "prayers" in the comment section.

There is no official word if the One Beer singer will play his forthcoming scheduled tour dates on October 8 at Texas's Globe Life Field, as support for Morgan Wallen's Dangerous tour, or his scheduled three-week run of dates set for December on his own Wall To Wall concerts.
