Wynonna Judd's husband, Michael "Cactus" Moser, was seriously injured in a motorcycle crash in South Dakota on August 18.

The singer's 55-year-old husband was riding his motorcycle on U.S. Highway 16 in Black Hills when he crossed the center line and hit a car, according to the Associated Press. Moser was then airlifted to Rapid City Regional Hospital.

His injures are noted as serious but not life-threatening. The driver of the car was not injured.

At the time of the accident, Judd was riding ahead of her husband and was not involved in the crash. Moser was later cited for crossing the center line and not having a license to operate a motorcycle.

Update 8/19 1:10 p.m. PT: Judd released an official statement about the accident on her official Facebook page, which can be read in full below.

"Wynonna has postponed her scheduled concerts in Canada next week due to a serious motorcycle accident involving her husband and drummer, Michael Scott 'Cactus' Moser," the statement said. "Moser and Judd went for a ride together on separate bikes before her scheduled concert in Deadwood, SD yesterday. Moser collided with an oncoming vehicle and was transported to a local hospital. He is being treated for serious but non-life threatening injuries. Wynonna was not involved in the accident."

"The outpouring of prayer and support from friends, family and fans has been a blessing to both Cactus and I. Cactus is a champion. I love him deeply and I will not leave his side," Judd said in the statement.

Judd announced on her website that she had to cancel her August 18 show at the Deadwood Mountain Grand Hotel & Casino.

Judd was seen posing on a motorcycle in a photo posted on her official Facebook page posted earlier that day.

"The boss is out riding," the caption for the photo said. "I hope she makes it back before the show! :) TO."

Judd, 48, and Moser, a drummer, wed on her farm in Leiper's Fork, Tennessee on June 10. It is the third marriage for Judd.

The couple got engaged on Christmas Eve last year and have been dating since 2009. Judd and Moser, whose real name is Michael Scott Moser, were touring together as Wynonna and The Big Noise throughout the summer. He has also played with the country group Highway 101.

Judd's children, Elijah, 17, and Grace, 16, attended her wedding. Their father is the singer's first husband, yacht businessman Arch Kelly III. The two were married for about two years and she filed for divorce in 1998. Judd was also married to D.R. Roach for four years. They divorced in 2007.
