Hardy has canceled two shows and moved another to next year due to panic attacks.

He wrote on his social media, “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. I need a moment to focus on me and to make myself better for my wife, family and you, the fans.”

Hardy’s shows Thursday in Simpsonville, South Carolina and Saturday in Brandon, Mississippi have been canceled, while Friday’s appearance at the Georgia Rodeo in Athens, Georgia has been moved to April 12th of next year. Hardy added that he plans to return to the road October 12th, in Jonesboro, Arkansas.

Hardy’s bus accident happened on October 2nd, 2022 on I-40 near Nashville following a performance at the Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tennessee. Hardy was one of four people aboard the bus when it overturned. He ended up in hospital with a punctured lung, four broken ribs, and a fractured vertebrae in his neck.
