Early past year, the Season 3 victor blacked out and crashed while driving and he had been slowly recovering since then, according to TMZ. "[Recovery is] a very slow progress".

"It was a very, very, very bad wreck", Boyd told the Southeast Missourian in February. "It's been hard, because you can't get up on stage right now, you can't perform for the audiences and you can't really do too much recording or traveling".

In 2011, the singer ran as Republican for the Missouri House of Representatives.

"You never know what's going to happen next".

"Just be grateful that you survived", he continued. The two were rushed to hospital at the time, with TMZ claiming that both Neal and his mother had been "slowly recovering" since then.
