Sammy Kershaw and his band are sore but not seriously injured following a bus accident in Texas Friday night. The accident happened following a show in Nocona when another vehicle struck the bus at high speed, causing major damage. The driver of the vehicle was taken to the hospital with injuries.

“My guys and I are a little sore today… the third day is always the worst,” Sammy said. “Eleven people were involved in the accident and no one was killed. It could have gone the other way. Buses and cars can be replaced but people can’t. I’m so thankful that the other driver, my band and crew are all still here. We had a guardian angel.”

Sammy has not canceled any scheduled tour dates following the accident. Though his bus was left in need of major repairs, he has arranged alternate transportation for himself and his band until the bus is rolling again.
