Kellie Pickler's drummer is in serious condition after a deadly highway accident near Louisville, Kentucky on Saturday.

Gregg Lohman suffered serious head and neck injuries and is still hospitalized. The four-vehicle wreck on southbound Interstate 65 happened about 15 minutes after a crash involving a tractor-trailer and an SUV on the northbound side.

Six people were killed in that first crash.

Pickler says Lohman is not just a drummer, but family. She says she believes in the power of prayer and asks fans to pray for him.
