Country music artist Josh Gracin (“Nothin’ To Lose”) posted a somewhat cryptic message on his Facebook page yesterday evening that left friends and fans panicked, especially with all of their senses for such things heightened after the Robin Williams suicide earlier in the week.
On Thursday Josh Gracin posted:
"I've loved her for 17 years ... I made mistakes ... I admitted them, told her the truth and she turned her back on me when I needed her help the most ... I love you all .. You have given me the greatest gift. You allowed me to touch your hearts with what I loved to do the most ... Please remember me as someone who gave his all in his music ... Pray for my family as they carry on in this world without me. Goodbye."
The post has since been deleted.
It set off a search that involved his family, management, friends and police. The Police responded to his home in Spring Hill, TN, where they found his wife Ann. The celebrity-based news and gossip site TMZ first reported this.
He was found and placed on a psychiatric hold and being observed by doctors. His manager posted later to Gracin’s Twitter and Facebook accounts that he was safe and with his family.
This is Josh's manager, Amy. Thank you everyone for your prayers & concern. Josh is safe & with his family now. I promise to update soon.The former American Idol contestant (season 2) was set to appear this weekend at a show in Charleston, WV but he has since cancelled his appearance. former label mate Trent Tomlinson will take his place at the event.
