Ouch… That had to hurt. Granger Smith fell off the stage during one of his shows on Friday (Dec 2nd.) He was rushed to the hospital immediately after to treat two broken ribs and a punctured lung. According to a statement from his publicist, the rising country star was performing at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, N.J., on Friday night. He was standing on a monitor when it unexpectedly gave way, sending the singer-songwriter plummeting from the stage, where he crashed into a metal barricade.
Granger Smith then got back onstage right after falling and joking stated, “It must have been a city boy that put that up there.” He was able to finish his set that night even though it was obvious to the crowd that he was in miserable pain. He had to cancel the rest of his shows for that weekend while he recovered from the fall.
Here is a fan twitter video from the show of Smith taking the fall off the stage.
