On Tuesday, the singer and his family visited Cobb County Fire Station 3 to meet the first responders who worked on him. 

“I can't than you guys too much,” he said. “One mistake. One lapse. One mistake. One panic and we're having a totally different conversation. I'm here today because you guys are here.”

Bryson said he's already doing 50 sit-ups and 25 minutes on the treadmill most days. 

The singer is a two-time Grammy winner - best known for his hits in Disney movies, like "Beauty and the Beast" and "A Whole New World."
