The legendary Tanya Tucker has been hospitalized following an accident that she sustained while on her North American tour.
According to Tulsa World, the 58-year-old songstress suffered from a terrible fall that left her with a fractured vertebra and an injured rib. Although it is unclear when the fall happened, the star was taken to a hospital in Texas, where she was then diagnosed with bronchitis.
Tanya’s incident has forced her to postpone three of her upcoming tour dates. The shows that have since been rescheduled were supposed to take place between the dates of Jan. 12-14, and include stops in Tulsa, as well as Grant Oklahoma and Emporia, Kansas.
Fortunately, Tanya’s management says that her condition will likely not require surgery. However, her recovery process is expected to be slow. Through it all, Tanya has stayed in good spirits.
“We’ve been having a blast with the band and fans on the road and I’m so mad this happened,” said Tanya in a recent statement, “I was really looking forward to seeing all the Okies and fans in Kansas this week, but we have to postpone the shows.”
She continued, “I’ll do my very best to make it up for y’all. Let’s hope for no more accidents this year and I look forward to a great 2017.”
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Tanya at this time. For more information you can visit Tanya’s official website here.
