Old Dominion frontman Matt Ramsey paid a visit to the hospital after sustaining multiple injuries in an accident at home. 

The singer/songwriter took to social media on Monday (May 10) to update fans on his condition, revealing that he was injured while trying to change a light bulb. 

“How many OD members does it take to change a lightbulb? Well, after a broken rib, collapsed lung, and various scrapes & bruises, I found out the answer is ‘More than one,’” Ramsey shared.

Luckily, Ramsey was able to return home and is on the mend.

“Back home and recovering now with all the fun pills,” he wrote, adding, “Be careful out there & get someone to hold [your] ladder.”
