HARDY is taking some time off of the road to focus on himself. The singer-songwriter shared a statement on social media, announcing he was canceling a couple of shows, to focus on his mental health, which has been suffering since his devastating bus accident last year.
“I need to be honest with everyone for a second,” HARDY says in a statement shared on social media. “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. I need a moment to focus on me and to make myself better for my wife, family, and you, the fans,”

“Unfortunately I will need [to] cancel the two the mockingbird & THE CROW Fall Tour shows on Oct. 5th & 7th,” he continues. “Refunds for these two shows will be available from point of purchase. The Georgia Rodeo show will be moved to April 12th 2024. Hold on to your tickets, they will be valid for the new 2024 date. My plan is to be back and focused on Oct 12th. Thank you for understanding, see you soon.”
HARDY suffered serious injuries in the accident, which took place one year ago, in October of 2022.
“Following last night’s show, our tour bus was in an accident on our way home from Bristol,” Hardy said at the time. “There were just four of us, including myself, on the bus, however we were all treated for significant injuries. Our friend, and bus driver, needs your prayers as he is still in the hospital. His family is with him while he is being treated and we’re all pulling and praying for him.”
“I’ve been proud of a lot of things in Nashville, but I can honestly say, all of the songs I’ve written, all the projects, videos, whatever I’ve been a part of, this music video is what I am most proud of, and the thing that I truly feel like I hang my hat on in Nashville,” HARDY said when accepting the trophy. “So thank y’all for voting for this. Lainey, you acted your a– off. I believed it and was intimidated the entire time. You were incredible.”
