County singer John Michael Montgomery is recovering from a “serious” bus accident. On Friday, the 57-year-old and two others were injured when his tour bus crashed in Tennessee near the Kentucky state line.

“Yesterday we had a serious accident on the way to a concert in North Carolina. Everyone that was on the bus is recovering from their injuries,” the singer shared with fans in a statement posted to Facebook. “Despite some cuts and broken ribs, I am doing well. I will take some time over the next couple of weeks to heal and be back on the road soon.”

Marc Wood of Frankfort, KY and passenger William Salyer of Staffordsville, KY were also injured in the crash, according to the report.
