Country artist, Jennifer Nettles, tripped over a lighting fixture and fell off the stage at a private show in New York City last Thursday (May 4th). She was on her way up to perform when it happened and a source says she fell to the concrete floor and yelled, “I broke my rib.”

Jennifer was rushed to the hospital and turns out she was right. She posted on Twitter, “Broken rib and banged up, but grateful. Maybe slowly moving for a bit. But I’ll rally.”

She also wanted everyone to know that she’s not a klutz, posting, “First time in all my 20-plus years of performing to fall off a stage. First time for everything.”

She also gave kudos to the EMT and hospital workers. “Thank you to first responders, EMTs, and everyone at the hospital. [To] Dr. Mordel and all the nurses, I am so grateful for you.”

Along with a confirmation that there was a whole lot of pain involved. “EMT: ‘On a scale of one to 10 how bad does it hurt?'” “Me: It’s not having a baby, but it’s close.'”

We hope you heal quickly, Jennifer!!
