Matthew Ramsey isn't letting a cane slow him down. Ramsey and his Old Dominion groupmates -- Trevor Rosen, Geoff Sprung, and Brad Tursi -- stepped out for the ACM Awards on Thursday, and Ramsey used a cane to help him make his way down the red carpet.

"This is my first venture into cane-dom," Ramsey told ET's Rachel Smith of the assistive device, which he's using following a March ATV accident that caused his pelvis to break in three places. 

Ramsey is currently on the road to recovery and is excited, along with his bandmates, to attend the Academy of Country Music Awards.

"You see everyone that you don't get to see all year round," Tursi said of why it means a lot to be at the event.

Their fans are certainly happy to have a chance to celebrate them, as the band keeps releasing hit after hit. When it comes to how they manage that, Rosen admitted with a laugh, "I don't know how we do it."

"I was gonna say I was surprised you didn't go, 'Well we're musical geniuses,'" Ramsey quipped in response. "'That's really the only way.'"

"I didn't want to let on that I knew," Rosen reasoned.

Before heading inside, Rosen said that it "would be wonderful" if he and the guys won the Group of the Year Award that they're nominated for, telling ET, "We would gladly welcome more statues."

Shortly thereafter they did just that. During their acceptance speech, Ramsey marveled, "Somehow we are included in this party still. I don't know how. It's an amazing thing."

Ramsey ended his speech by waving his cane in the air and joking, "Thanks to my friends for holding me up when I need it."
