While traveling for the third weekend of his Born Ready Tour, country singer Steve Moakler and his band were involved in an accident that has left everyone involved shaken up.
Moakler has been on the country scene since his 2009 debut album All the Faint Lights and has steadily been releasing albums ever since. He has written songs for singers such as Dierks Bentley, Jake Owen, Eric Church, Kellie Pickler. He has opened for Dan + Shay on their 2016 tour and select dates for Tim McGraw and Faith Hill on their Soul2Soul Tour.
Set to play shows in Asheville, North Carolina on Thursday (April 26), Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on Friday (April 27) and Guntersville, Alabama on Saturday (April 28), Moakler took to social media to explain a change of plans due to an accident he and the band got into.
“Wow…crazy day,” he wrote on Instagram. “We got into a really scary accident a couple hours ago while I was behind the wheel.”
He also wrote that everyone is “miraculously okay” although there were a few bruises, cuts, and burns.
“Thanking God and his angels for protecting us and everyone else on the road. I’m SO happy to be alive,” he finished the post.

Wow…. crazy day. We got into a really scary accident a couple hours ago while I was behind the wheel. With the exception of a few minor bruises, cuts, and burns, everyone is miraculously okay. Thanking God and his angels for protecting us and everyone else on the road. I’m SO happy to be alive. ❤️?? #bornreadytour
In a Twitter video, Moakler explained that they would be able to get to the Asheville show and the Guntersville show on Saturday, but because the accident affected their transportation, they would have to cancel the Myrtle Beach show.

We’re sure his fans in Myrtle Beach will understand, considering the circumstances. We are so thankful Maokler and everyone else in the vehicle are okay!
