Matthew Ramsey is letting fans know he’s OK after taking a nasty fall at his home on Monday after falling off of a ladder. The Old Dominion singer said he broke a rib and suffered a collapsed lung.

But in his Instagram post, he said he’s already at home “recovering with the fun pills.”

“How many OD members does it take to change a lightbulb? Well, after a broken rib, collapsed lung, and various scrapes and bruises, I found out the answer is ‘More than one.’ Back home and recovering now with all the fun pills. Y’all be careful out there and get someone to hold your ladder. -m”

Old Dominion is set to begin the band’s Behind the Curtain tour on May 27 in Oklahoma. The band played a concert with a surprise visit from Kenny Chesney in Key West recently.

It’s unclear if Ramsey’s injuries will affect the tour.

“We’ve been the band that plays the little side stage or whatever. And it’s hard to wrap your head around the fact that that’s no, you are headlining the show and these people are coming to see you,” Ramsey said when the tour was announced, according to The Country Daily.

“So every show is still a surprise to me and the guys actually make fun of me sometimes because I’m always like, ‘Is there anyone here?’ and they’re like, ‘Yes man, there’s going to be a lot of people here,'” he laughed. “But we still have that sense that we want to prove ourselves to them. And we want to make them come back. And we want to make them feel like they get what they paid for or more than they paid for.”

Fans, Musicians Wish Old Dominion’s Ramsey Well

The comments of Matthew Ramsey were full of some of Nashville’s rising stars and major players.

TJ Osborne of Brothers Osborne said, “Can’t catch a break.” Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild was concerned. “Oh no!! Glad you’re ok,” she commented.

Sony Nashville and the ACM Awards also wished him a speedy recovery.

But if Ramsey is shocked that fans care about Old Dominion, he doesn’t haven’t to scroll far to find hundreds of them offering up their love and support.

“Prayers for a healthy recovery! Just saw you’re headed to Spokane, WA in late September. Stay off ladders till then!!! I need my OD fix,” one person wrote. “Oh my god!!! Please be careful and get well soon!” wrote another.
