Canaan Smith is currently recovering from an illness that landed him in the hospital on Wednesday (8/23) – one day before his 35th birthday.
The scary moment happened while Canaan was in State College, Pennsylvania, to perform a show that night according to Taste Of Country.
Smith shared several pictures of the harrowing ordeal on Instagram, including a photo of medics checking on him in his tour bus and another shot of him on a stretcher in an ambulance.
Where do I start? I missed bus call Tuesday night cause I came down with something fierce…lost all body fluids and felt like a knife was being twisted around in my stomach. 😷 Flew out the next morning to try and put on a show for PA. Here's how it turned out…For the record, I will ALWAYS give you everything I've got. Thanks for the support, Pennsylvania. And thanks to the fine medics/nurses/doctors at State College for taking care of me. Waking up feeling much better on my birthday 🤠See ya tonight, Delaware
