Granger Smith is on the mend after suffering two broken ribs and a punctured and partially collapsed lung after a stage fall during a show in Sayreville, New Jersey this past Friday (December 2nd) night. The singer took to social media yesterday (Tuesday, December 6th) to reach out to his fans with an update. He posted a picture of himself giving thumbs up writing, “Update: Out of the hospital, back in TX & starting to regain movements. The outpouring of support has me feeling VERY blessed. Thank y’all!”

Granger was standing on a monitor on the stage when it gave way, sending him crashing into a metal barricade. That night, he was admitted to the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, a Level 1 Trauma Center, in New Brunswick, NJ. Granger said, “I truly appreciate all the doctors and nurses at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital. Their resolve and professionalism were reassuring during a pretty rough few days for me.”

He 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. He said, “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.”
