The “Tn Whiskey” crooner (born Bennie Amey III) was rushed to the hospital on Monday, August 31, after the accident, where he was treated for “significant injuries” and is now resting in the ICU as he awaits additional surgery, Brown’s record label, BBR Music Group, announced on Thursday, September 3.
“BBR Music Group’s beloved Blanco Brown, the artist behind 2019’s worldwide viral smash ‘The Git Up’ and current hit ‘Just the Way,’ was involved in a head-on collision Monday night near his home in Atlanta, GA,” the statement read. “The accomplished writer, vocalist and Grammy-nominated producer suffered significant injuries and was transported to a local hospital where he underwent a 12-hour surgery to address those traumas.”
According to BBR Music Group, the 35-year-old country artist will require more procedures, but is now recovering from the initial surgery.
