“The Git Up” singer Blanco Brown is on the road to recovery after a head-on car crash on Aug. 31 that left him with “significant injuries.”
An update from BBR Music Group on Monday (Sept. 14) revealed that after the collision near his home in Atlanta, the Grammy nominee “suffered significant injuries and was transported to a local hospital where he underwent a 12-hour surgery to address those traumas.”
“Brown has since relocated out of the ICU, following an additional 12-hour plus surgery and is continuing his recovery in the hospital,” the statement continues. “His team of doctors do not anticipate Brown requiring any additional surgeries and expect him to make a full recovery. Blanco, his family and his friends wish to express that they have been humbled and deeply touched by the outpouring of love from all over the world. They would like to thank everyone for their support and ask for continued prayers for Blanco during this time.”
Brown’s “The Git Up” spent 12 weeks at No. 1 on the Hot Country Songs chart in 2019, and No. 14 on the all-genre Hot 100. His most recent Hot Country Songs hit was “Just the Way,” a collaboration with Parmalee, which reached No. 31 in April.
