According to her Instagram stories, McBryde was riding a horse while visiting Missoula, Montana on Wednesday (Sept. 22) and was rushed to the hospital after an accident that occurred while rising a horse. 

Thankfully, the “One Night Standards” singer is now on the med after receiving care in a nearby hospital. 

McBryde’s statement, which was released on Wednesday, reads: 

Earlier today, Ashley was enjoying her time in the beautiful state of Montana and had an accident while riding a horse. After a trip to the hospital and a few stitches (and some very sore bones) she is recovering and doing her best to ensure she can play again as soon as possible. Thank you to the wonderful EMTs and hospital workers in Missoula. Our sincerest apologies to the fans for the postponement tonight. As soon as we have updates on other shows this week, we will make sure to let everyone know.
