Granger Smith Released From Hospital, Recovering at Home in Texas
It’s been a tumultuous couple of days for Granger Smith. The “Backroad Song” singer took a tumble off the stage at his concert at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey on Friday (Dec. 2) after a monitor he was standing on gave way.
After the show, Smith was rushed to a nearby Emergency Room and was later transferred and admitted to a level one trauma center in New Brunswick, NJ. Doctors say the Texas native sustained two completely separated, broken ribs and a punctured and partially collapsed lung.
After spending a couple of days recovering, Smith took to Facebook to share a reassuring update with his fans.
“Update: Out of the hospital, back in TX & starting to regain movements,” he wrote. “The outpouring of support has me feeling VERY blessed. Thank y’all!”
To allow himself time to fully recover, the singer has been forced to cancel the remainder of his 2016 tour dates. He’s disappointed, but plans to make it up to his fans as soon as possible.
“I’ve had so many emails and tweets. It’s pretty amazing that so many people have reached out from across the country,” Smith shared. “I feel so blessed to have more than just support for my music from fans and radio. It’s deeply humbling to have fans that personally care so much.”
Fans can stay tuned to Smith’s official website for updates regarding the canceled shows. His latest single, “If The Boot Fits,” is spinning at Country radio now.
