Josh Ward seriously injured in riding accident
Friday night (August 6) Josh Ward entertained a sold-out crowd at KOKEFEST, Sunday August 8 the country crooner was involved in a serious riding accident.
This afternoon we had an update via Ward’s social media:
On Sunday August 8, Josh was involved in a horseback riding accident that resulted in severe abdominal injuries and internal bleeding. He had surgery to stop the bleeding, the operation was successful. We are all very grateful to the surgeon and his team at Memorial Hermann who saved his life. Josh will be in the hospital this week and will need a few weeks at home to fully recover.
Unfortunately, there will be postponed dates which will be announced tomorrow. We ask you to keep him in your prayers for a full and speedy recovery. The family informs us that no visits are allowed at this time. Heather and Jayce thank you for all your prayers and love. #ACowboyCan
While we don’t know the details of his accident at this time, in the mail his medics are credited with saving Ward’s life. And as expected, with weeks of recovery ahead of him, several of his shows have been postponed and canceled.
If you’re looking for some shameless, hard-core, and no-holds-barred COUNTRY music, Josh Ward is your man. It’s a throwback to the 90s and a better boot time. In June 2019, the Texas native became the 50th artist to release a Living at Billy Bob’s Texas album.
Be well, Josh! We will see you soon on the road.
