Granger Smith’s Equipment Truck Involved in Terrifying Accident
Granger Smith is counting his blessings after his equipment truck was involved in an accident that left it overturned across the highway with the front of its cab pushed in.
The "You're in It" singer turned to Instagram on Saturday afternoon (Aug. 11) to share the photo above, showing the horrifying-looking aftermath of the accident. But while he said he and his band and crew have had a "hell of a morning," he was thankful it didn't turn out worse.
"No one was hurt, and my driver Charlie climbed out without a scratch," Smith writes to accompany the photo. "We lost gear, but all that can be replaced. Grateful for my road brothers, and thankful for another day. See you tonight on stage in Baltimore!"
History of Country Music's Bus Fires
Smith is slated to perform at the Power Plant Live in Baltimore, Md., on Saturday night.
This isn't the first close call for the singer while out on the road. Smith fell off a stage in New Jersey in December of 2016, leaving him with two separated broken ribs and a punctured and partially collapsed lung. He had to cancel 10 shows and recuperate for three weeks before returning to the road, and the time to reflect helped shape his most recent album, When the Good Guys Win.
Smith scored a No. 13 hit with "Happens Like That," the first single from the album. He recently filmed a video for the album's second single, "You're in It," that stars his real-life wife, Amber. The couple actually met on the set of one of Smith's videos in 2009.
