Granger Smith took a massive fall while performing this past weekend, leaving him with two broken ribs and a punctured and partially collapsed lung. The rising star has taken to social media to update fans that he is back home in Texas and on his way to recovery.
“Update: Out of the hospital, back in TX & starting to regain movements” Smith shares in an update. “The outpouring of support has me feeling VERY blessed. Thank y’all!”
Granger was initially taken to a nearby emergency room and then admitted to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, a Level 1 Trauma Center, in New Brunswick, NJ. “I truly appreciate all the doctors and nurses at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital,” said Granger. “Their resolve and professionalism were reassuring during a pretty rough few days for me.”
With the injuries Smith sustained, the remainder of his 2016 shows have been canceled. However, the artist does plan on making it up to his fans. “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.”
Thankfully Granger is taking the adequate time needed to fully recovery, and he will be ready to take 2017 by the horns for an epic year ahead.
