Giovannie Yanez

The frontman of Giovannie & the Hired Guns is being very vulnerable with fans.

The larger-than-life personality of Giovannie Yanez is a reason that fans fall in love with the music of the Texas Southern rock band. With him running around on stage, partying with fans, and belting out the lyrics of their songs, it’s hard not to fall in love with their infectious energy.

While many fans feel as though they connect with artists because of the lyrics they sing and the touching words that are said on stage. But, at the end of the day, no matter how much you look up to an artist who resonates with you, you do not know what they might struggle with behind closed doors.

Today, Yanez took to social media to inform fans that his party persona was becoming more than a persona, but a problem. Sharing an image of the front desk of an alcohol and drug recovery center in California, the frontman informed fans that he was stepping away to receive help.

“I love you all.. I never thought I’d be doing a post like this. I was surprised by my entire band and wife that my problem was getting serious and worse.

I love each and everyone of yall all the fans all my friends all my everyone in my life. I’ll be out soon. Just gotta be a little selfish. Don’t be scared to ask for help like me, but I’m human I messed up so glad I have the people I do in my life.

This is a little bump in the road to world domination!! I love you all I’m sorry I hope this helps someone that is struggling.”

Giovanni was quickly met in the comments by overwhelming support from fans, country music colleagues, and loved ones.

“Proud of you, buddy! Takes a strong man to seek help but takes an even better man to inspire others to do the same.”

“That first step is always the hardest. You got this, homie.”

“You’ve got a bunch of people in your corner. You got this! Sending healing and peaceful vibes for recovery.”

“Ain’t nothing wrong with trying to better yourself. We’re all human, and we all have our faults. The only way to go from here is up!”

“Don’t ever feel bad for recognizing and taking action! You got this, man! Let’s go!!”

“Love you, dude! You’re doing incredible things and will continue doing incredible things. You’re in my prayers, brotha.”

“Love ya homie, glad you’re able to get the help you need. You’ll be better for it.”

“So proud of you for acknowledging that things could be better and being willing to do the work for you and your health.”

It takes a lot of bravery and courage to admit that you need help and even more bravery to take action and receive the help you need. We are sending Gio lots of support.

When it is time, the stage will be ready for his triumphant return.
