Country singer John Michael Montgomery injured in tour bus accident

“Sold” country music star John Michael Montgomery is recovering after his tour bus was in a “bad accident” on a Tennessee highway while driving to a concert in North Carolina on Friday.

Montgomery, who has more than 30 singles, said on his Facebook page on Saturday that he suffered “a few cuts and broken ribs” and would “need some time over the next few weeks to heal and be back on the road soon.” .

Also injured were Kentucky residents William Salyer and Marc Wood, the Tennessean reported. Only Salyer was reportedly not wearing a seat belt.

Montgomery’s 2001 Prevost Featherlite bus was traveling on Interstate 75 south of the town of Jellico when it went off the road and hit an embankment before overturning, the newspaper reported, citing the Tennessee Highway Patrol.

“I am grateful to the paramedics and highway patrol for their quick response to this difficult situation,” Montgomery, 57, said on Facebook. “Thank you everyone for your concerns.”

The next concert scheduled for the Kentucky native is in Indiana on September 24, according to his website. The Tennessean reported that a Sept. 17 show set was scratched in Texas.
