Country music star Hardy is taking a break from performing to focus on his health, according to an Instagram post.
The singer-songwriter took to Instagram on Tuesday to announce the cancellation of his upcoming shows as he was hospitalized after experiencing panic attacks.
In a message posted on his social media, Hardy explained the reasons behind his decision.
“I need to be honest with everyone for a second. I’ve been dealing with some serious anxiety since the bus accident last year and over the last two weeks, it has taken control of my life. It’s caused me to suffer many panic attacks which have landed me in the hospital,” he wrote. (RELATED: Musician Grimes Says She Was Hospitalized For A Panic Attack)
