Granger Smith took to his socials yesterday morning (12/6) to update fans on his condition after a serious fall during a recent show in New Jersey left him with two broken ribs and a punctured and partially collapsed lung. In a picture posted on Instagram, Granger gave the thumbs as he rested on a couch with his head propped up by pillows.
· Granger was admitted to a Level 1 Trauma Center in New Brunswick, New Jersey, following his injury, but has since flown home to Texas to rest and recover with his family.
· The remainder of Smith’s 2016 tour has been canceled, but he fully intends to make up those missed dates for fans.
· Granger said in a message 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.”
Granger Smith’s single “Backroad Song” has taken the #1 spot on all country charts this week, giving Smith his first career chart-topper. Granger said, “How do I put this into words? Having a #1 song has been a lifelong dream of mine and to achieve this as both a writer and a singer is surreal.
