Country music artist Granger Smith was able to continue performing after falling from a stage in New Jersey, but was later hospitalized.

A spokeswoman said in a statement Smith shared on Twitter that he fell while singing at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville on Friday night.

Smith was being treated for two broken ribs and a punctured and partially collapsed lung.

Smith was standing on an audio monitor when it gave way and he fell into a metal barricade. He got back up and continued performing.

He says he took a pretty hard spill but hopes to be out of the hospital soon to head home to his family in Texas.
