On Friday night (August 6) Josh Ward was entertaining a sold-out crowd at KOKEFEST in Hutto, TX, on Sunday (August 8) the country crooner was involved in a serious horseback riding accident. Ward's camp shared the news of the accident on Monday:

Sunday August 8th, Josh was involved in a horse riding accident that resulted in serious abdominal injuries and internal bleeding. He underwent surgery to stop the bleeding, the surgery was a success. We are all very thankful for the surgeon and his team at Memorial Hermann who saved his life. Josh will be in the hospital this week and will require a few weeks at home to fully recover.

Unfortunately, there will be some rescheduled dates that will be announced tomorrow. We ask that you keep him in your prayers for a full and speedy recovery. The family advises us that no visitors are allowed at this time. Heather & Jayce thank you for all your prayers & love. #ACowboyCan
