NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – “The Git Up” singer Blanco Brown is in intensive care after being seriously injured in a head-on collision with a vehicle near Atlanta.
According to a statement from his record label, BBR Music Group, the writer and producer was injured Monday night and was transported to a local hospital where he underwent a 12-hour operation. Additional operations are expected and his family is asking for prayers.
Brown’s combination of country and trap music, which often relies heavily on 808 bass drum sounds and hi-hat cymbals, went viral on the TikTok app, where people mimicked his dance moves or added their own dances and tagged them on #TheGitUpChallenge.
The song topped Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart for 12 weeks, reaching number 14 on the Hot 100 chart across all genres. Last year he released his debut album “Honeysuckle & Lightning Bugs” with BBR Music Group.
