Josh Ward, a guy we have come to know and love in Texas Music was seriously injured in a horse riding accident that required him to be rushed to the hospital where he underwent emergency surgery.

In a statement on Josh's Facebook, he informed his fans about what happened.

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
“All grit and no quit.” These are the deeply rooted words that Josh Ward lives by to an absolute fault. Josh Ward Music
Looks like that motto sure is true for this cowboy.
So glad to hear that Josh will be ok and is on the mend.
