Nashville Drummer’s Livelihood Threatened Following Serious Accident

Miles

Nashville drummer, Miles McPherson (best known for his work with Kelly Clarkson and Paramore), was in a serious accident on Friday, August 16th, while he was riding in a golf cart with his wife and friends. Miles was in the driver’s seat of the cart when it flipped over, resulting in serious injuries to Miles’ face, hands, arm, shoulder, and leg. Miles was admitted to the ICU burn unit at Vanderbilt University following the accident, due to severe burns from battery acid, which leaked when the cart flipped. The injuries Miles has sustained could have a lasting effect on his livelihood, as he is a drummer who was about to embark on a tour with Paramore.

Webpages have been set up to show support for Miles and his family at this time. If you are interested in learning how you can help, please visit the website dedicated to Miles, as well as the Facebook page that was created in response to this accident.

We wish Miles a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing this talented musician back on stage in the short-term!

Kellie Pickler’s drummer, Gregg Lohman, was seriously injured in a car accident involving four cars on Interstate 65 near Louisville, Kentucky on Saturday. He is currently in ICU at Louisville Hospital. According to Nashville TV station WKRN, he is in serious but stable condition.

Kellie shared this statement on her Facebook & Twitter pages:

“@kelliepickler: Yesterday, my drummer Gregg Lohman was in a horrific car accident and is currently in ICU. Gregg is not just my drummer, he is family. I believe in miracles and the power of prayer, so it would mean the world to me, my band, and Gregg’s family if you would please keep him in your prayers. Thank y’all so much. -Pickler”

Our thoughts and prayers are with Gregg, his family, Kellie, and the band/crew. We hope Gregg makes a full recovery and will be back behind his drums soon.
