Hardy and members of his crew were treated for “significant injuries” following a bus accident in Tennessee.

Hardy, whose full name is Michael Wilson Hardy, shared news of the accident on social media Sunday (October 2), saying:

“Following last night’s show, our tour bus was in an accident on our way home from Bristol. There were just four of us, including myself, on the bus, however we were all treated for significant injuries,” the country singer wrote.

Hardy added that his bus driver remains hospitalized and requested prayer for him. “His family is with him while he is being treated and we’re all pulling and praying for him.”

The singer and his crew were returning home early Sunday morning after appearing at Country Thunder Bristol. Hardy has been released from the hospital, but has been ordered to recover for a few weeks.

Hardy concluded his statement by asking for prayer for his team. “Please keep our road family in your prayers and I promise to keep you updated in the days to follow. God bless our medics and local and state officials for their quick response and incredible service.”
