County star Kellie Pickler's drummer has been released from hospital after suffering serious injuries in a car accident earlier this month (Mar13).

Gregg Lohman was driving in Kentucky on 2 March (13) when he was allegedly read-ended by a tractor trailer.

He was taken to the University of Louisville Hospital for treatment, and now he has been transferred to a local physical rehabilitation centre, where he will continue his recovery.

According to Fox News, the musician is already starting to show improvement by eating and walking on his own.

A post on his blog reads, "We are so pleased to report that Gregg continues to blow us away with his progress. Under his quiet persona is a determined bulldog!... As always, we also thank you for your support and kind words to Gregg. I know he sure appreciates all of you."

Lohman will have plenty of time to nurse himself back to good health - Pickler is taking some time off from touring to compete on U.S. show Dancing With the Stars.
