Country Star Hardy Opens Up About ‘Panic Attacks’ and ‘Serious Anxiety’, Cancels Shows After 2022 Bus Accident

Hardy is canceling shows because of “serious anxiety” that he’s been dealing with since last year’s tour bus accident.

The ‘Wait in the Truck’ singer made the difficult decision to cancel upcoming shows, in order to prioritize his well-being.

In a post shared on social media, he wrote,”I need to be honest with everyone for a second. I’ve been dealing with some serious anxiety since the bus accident last year and over the last two weeks, it has taken control of my life.”

“It’s caused me to suffer many panic attacks which have landed me in the hospital,” he continued. “I need a moment to focus on me and to make myself better for my wife, family and you, the fans.”

He shared that he plans to resume touring on October 12th. Refunds will be provided for two of the upcoming dates, while the third date has been rescheduled.

The accident took place in October 2022 and the photographer on board shared photos of the damage that left everyone unconscious saying, “Last week we had one of the most terrifying accidents happen to us. For those who don’t know: around 2:30am last Sunday, our bus ran off the highway at around 70mph flipping us into the woods. There were 4 of us aboard: our driver Ricky, our tour manager Noah who was asleep in his bunk, and me and Hardy who were up in the front lounge. Within what felt like 3 seconds, our bodies were thrown across the room knocking us all unconscious. By the grace of God, we all survived. My injuries included a shattered foot, a punctured lung, 4 broken ribs, and a fractured vertebrae in my neck. And yes, it’s been f—g terrible.”

He shared that doctors said it was a miracle they were alive before adding, “I think about the times that i’ve spent worrying, stressed, upset, been less present or simply took for granted, and it kills me. I think about all the people in my life, family, friends, co workers, etc. and wished that I could have spent more time with them or somehow made them feel better in moments with something as simple and little as a compliment. Most of all, I think about perspective, in that it’s so easy for us to lose sight of all of the things we have. Take it from me, be grateful for f—g EVERYTHING.”

We’re sending Hardy all of our love!
