Lynn Anderson had an accident on the way to last week’s George Jones tribute concert


Singer Lynn Anderson was scheduled to appear at last week's huge George Jones tribute in Nashville, but unfortunately missed the show. 

This morning she posted an update on her Facebook detailing the scary reason why she ended up being absent.  

“I regret that I was unable to make the George Jones Tribute Concert last Friday. I was so looking forward to singing with my girls and singing the praises of the great "Possum." Unfortunately, my trusty old SUV blew a front right tire on the way to meet my agent and head for Bridgestone Arena. It left the road, and I ended up in the gravel, giving me a pretty good cut on my head.

A good Samaritan saw me leave the road and immediately called an ambulance. Next thing I knew, I was headed to a local hospital and after two days I was released and I’m on the road to recovery. I would like to extend a personal thank you to the gentleman that came to my aid Friday evening. However, I did not even get his name as things were happening so quickly. If you are that person, would you please contact PLA or connect with me on Facebook or Twitter. I would like to thank you in person. I recently had just undergone surgery to install a pacemaker and was a new user of blood thinners. Because of his actions, I will be able to make a swift recovery. I definitely have a lot to be thankful for this holiday season and look forward to the premiere my new Gospel project and hitting the road in 2014. Thank you for my family, fans and friends for sticking with me and being so supportive.”

So glad everything came out okay.
