Country music artist Granger Smith was able to continue performing after falling from a stage in New Jersey, but was later hospitalized.
A spokeswoman said in a statement Smith shared on Twitter that he fell while singing at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville on Friday night.
Smith was being treated for two broken ribs and a punctured and partially collapsed lung.
Smith was standing on an audio monitor when it gave way and he fell into a metal barricade. He got back up and continued performing.
He says he took a pretty hard spill but hopes to be out of the hospital soon to head home to his family in Texas.
Shows this weekend in North Carolina and Texas were canceled. Information about future shows will be released later.
Despite the severity of his injuries, he somehow managed to climb back onstage and finish the concert before heading to the emergency room.
Smith confirmed the news Saturday on Twitter, revealing he remains in the hospital and announcing he’s cancelling all scheduled performances and appearances this weekend. “I took a pretty hard spill last night in Jersey. Thx for the well wishes!” he writes. “Y’all mean the world to me,” and added: “I’ll be out of the hospital and 100% soon!”
