Really sad news from HARDY this afternoon.

He shared a lengthy post on Instagram saying that he has been hospitalized due to anxiety attacks which are related to a serious bus accident he was involved in last October, and he is canceling his three shows this weekend.

Hardy and some of his team were involved in a horrific bus accident last year, where their tour bus ran off the highway going around 70 miles per hour and flipped into the woods.

His tour photographer/videographer and friend Tanner Gallagher shared previously that everyone on the bus was knocked unconscious, and that multiple doctor’s told them it “was a miracle that we survived.”

It was a truly horrific scene, and in the post, Hardy noted that he’s been dealing with “serious anxiety” since that accident, and over the last two weeks, it had “taken total control of my life.”

He added that severe anxiety attacks have actually landed him in the hospital, and he is unable to perform at the next several stops on his the mockingbird & THE CROW fall tour.

Fans will be refunded for the October 5th and 7th concert, but the Georgia Rodeo show will be moved to April 12th of 2024, and previously purchased tickets will be valid, so hold onto ’em if you have tickets for that show and can still make it.

Refunds will be available from point of purchase, and you can read his full statement below:

“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 total 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. 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.”

Our best wishes to Hardy as he recovers.

Hardy’s song with Lainey Wilson, “wait in the truck,” was just certified 2X Platinum by the RIAA.
