GRANGER SMITH UPDATES FANS ON HIS CONDITION AFTER STAGE FALL

06/12/2016

Following a serious fall that resulted in two broken ribs and a punctured and partially collapsed lung this past Friday evening during a show at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey, 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!"

Following his injury, Granger was admitted to the 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."

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. "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."
