Luke Bryan suffers shoulder injury, goes on with concert

Oct. 6, 2016: Despite a shoulder injury he suffered hours before the concert, country singer Luke Bryan brought his Farm Tour to Maple Lane Farms.

GREENBACK - Country singer Luke Bryan took the stage at Maple Lane Farms Thursday night for the first concert of his 2016 Farm Tour.

Bryan performed only a few hours after suffering a shoulder injury while out for a bike ride.

He tweeted shortly before 7 p.m.: "Broken clavicle. All good. Show is a go. I'll just have my arm in a sling."

Bryan was riding the bike near the Greenback area site when the accident happened, according to sources. One source said he ended up in a ditch and suffered the broken collar bone.

He sought treatment at Blount Memorial Hospital in Maryville on Thursday afternoon and left about 6:30 p.m.

This is the third consecutive year he's performed at Maple Lane Farms.

Thursday's concert was originally supposed to be the second stop on the Farm Tour. Bryan had to cancel a South Carolina date this week that was supposed to be the opener because of the threat of Hurricane Matthew.

More than 16,000 fans were expected to attend the Thursday show.
