Gavin DeGraw is feeling better after being discharged from the hospital more than a week ago.

DeGraw was assaulted by a group of people and hit by a cab in New York City earlier this month, which caused the singer -- who was on tour with Maroon 5 and Train -- to subsequently cancel several of his performances.

"Instead of checking in from the tour, I'm writing as I recover at home," DeGraw told VH1. "I'm feeling much better, but it will take a little bit more time to be back to 100 percent!"

He mentioned all the support he had been receiving thus far. "I'm overwhelmed with the outpouring of support from my fans, friends and family. I can't wait to get back out on tour and look forward to seeing you on the road sometime soon," he continued. "I'll keep you POSTED."

At the DoSomething Awards last weekend, OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder told The Hollywood Reporter that DeGraw was "confused and getting through it," when asked about his New York assault. "The whole thing is just random and absurd. But he's recovering and canceled some more dates, but he'll be back at the end of the month, I think -- back with Maroon 5 and Train," Tedder said.

During the course of the last few days, DeGraw has been taking to Twitter to update everyone on his status -- and sending messages to his fans. "Hi my friends," he tweeted on Tuesday, Aug. 9 after being discharged from the hospital, "Honestly, I don't remember much. I only know I can recover from here."
