He shared footage from the accident on September 1 and said, “At the end of the day, it can all be over, man.”

“When God talks, you gotta listen,” he continued. “I swear, life is funny. Because some of the craziest things that happen to you end up being the thing that you needed most. And in this case, I honestly feel like God basically told me to sit down. When you’re moving too fast and you’re doing too much sometimes you can’t see the things that you’re meant to see.”

Kevin added, “After my accident, I see things differently. I see life from a whole new perspective. My appreciation for life is through the roof. I'm thankful for my family, my friends. I'm thankful for the people that simply ride with me and have been with me. Because you stood by me, my fans. I'm thankful for all of your love and support."
