Hardy is recovering from “significant injuries” but the bus driver has his family by his side with everyone “pulling and praying for him.”
Country music singer/songwriter Hardy has revealed his tour bus flipped over in an accident.
The AMC winner for songwriter of the year was hospitalized due to “significant injuries,” the incident happened following his performance in Bristol, Tennessee on Saturday.
“Following last night’s show, our tour bus was in an accident on our way home from Bristol,” he began in a statement posted to Twitter.
Hardy updated fans on his condition, and revealed that there were four people aboard the bus who were also treated for “significant injuries.” The 32-year-old added that the bus driver remains hospitalized.
“Our friend, and bus driver needs your prayers as he is still in the hospital,” Hardy, born Michael Wilson Hardy tweeted. “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,” he continued. “My team and I will keep the fans updated on that as I rest in the coming days.”
The “wait in the truck” singer concluded his statement, “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.”

Whether or not the singer will make an appearance at next week’s show has not been confirmed.
