Granger Smith was injured last Friday night while performing a show at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey. Granger was standing on a monitor when it gave way, bringing Granger crashing off the stage into a metal barricade. Miraculously, Granger managed to get up and finish the set through excruciating pain, which ended with the crowd singing “Backroad Song.”
After visiting a nearby Emergency Room, he was transferred and admitted to a Level 1 trauma center in New Brunswick, NJ and doctors confirmed two completely separated, broken ribs and a punctured and partially collapsed lung.
Granger Smith took to social media today to reach out to his fans with an update…
He posted, “Update: Out of the hospital, back in TX & starting to regain movements. The outpouring of support has me feeling VERY blessed. Thank y’all!”
“I’ve had so many emails and tweets. It’s pretty amazing that so many people have reached out from across the country. 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.”
Granger has since flown home to Texas where he is resting and recovering with his family. The remainder of shows for 2016 have been canceled, but Granger fully intends to make it up to his fans.
