Kellie Pickler's Drummer Seriously Injured In Car Crash
Kellie Pickler is asking fans to join her in praying for a member of her band. She explains in a Facebook post that drummer Gregg Lohman was "in a horrific car accident and is currently in ICU." She adds that she believes "in miracles and the power of prayer," and it "would mean the world" to her, her band, and Gregg's family for people to "keep him in your prayers." Nashville's Fox17 says Lohman suffered serious injuries in the crash, which occurred Saturday afternoon near Louisville, Kentucky, and he was admitted to a local hospital.
Lohman is the second country musician to be involved in a serious car accident in less than a week. Last Wednesday Toby Keith's bassist and bandleader, Chuck Goff Jr., was killed in a two-car wreck in Cleveland County, Oklahoma. Toby posted a message on his website saying he's "deeply saddened" by Chuck's sudden death, noting that in addition to being in his band Chuck had been "a close friend" for more than 25 years.
