Granger Smith has been hospitalized after sustaining injuries Friday night (Dec. 2) during his concert at Sayreville, New Jersey’s Starland Ballroom.

Smith was standing on a monitor when it gave way, causing the singer to fall from the stage and into a metal barricade. Still, Granger finished his set, including a performance of “Backroad Song.”

Smith was taken to a nearby emergency room, and was then admitted to a Level 1 trauma center in New Brunswick, New Jersey. His injuries included two separated, broken ribs, as well as a punctured and partially collapsed lung.

“I took a pretty hard spill last night in Jersey,” Smith said via Twitter. “Thx for the well wishes! Y’all mean the world to me. I’ll be out of the hospital & 100% soon!”

All shows and appearances through the weekend have been cancelled, including shows at City Limits Saloon in Raleigh, North Carolina (Dec. 3) and Billy Bob’s Texas in Fort Worth (Dec. 4).

Information about Smith’s additional December shows is forthcoming.
