Wayne “The Train” Hancock, frequently known as the King of Juke Joint Swing, is currently in a hospital ICU, where he is being treated for injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident Saturday, April 26.

According to a post on Wayne’s Facebook, he was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident but suffered other injuries, including a collapsed lung and fractured elbow. “His spirits are high and wishes he could be with Y'all,” reads the post, “but things are out of his hands at the moment and must do as the Doctors tell him so as to make sure he CAN return to Y'all.” The post does not say where the accident occured or where Wayne is being treated.

The remainder of Wayne’s May tour dates have been canceled to allow the singer/songwriter time to recuperate. Those wishing to send cards and letters may do so at 4937 Stuart Road #181, Denton, TX 76207.

Wayne’s most recent album, Ride, appeared in 2013 and the title track is a gritty, honky-tonk motorcycle saga.

Country Weekly sends its best wishes to Wayne for a speedy recovery.
