In other medical news in Nashville … Singer-songwriter, Chris Young, returned home to Nashville this past weekend after being admitted last week to Presbyterian/St. Luke’s Medical Center in Denver for a dangerous bacterial infection as a result of a small cut on his leg. Chris was en route to a tour date in Montana on Tuesday, August 13th when he began to go into septic shock and was taken by ambulance to the Denver, Colorado hospital. An emergency surgery was performed where doctors removed the infection from Chris’s leg.

As expected, his mobility is currently impacted by the surgery and his doctor has advised he wait a full week post-surgery to resume touring. Chris will return to the road starting with Brad Paisley’s “Beat This Summer Tour Presented By Cracker Barrel Old Country Store” on Thursday, August 22 in Mountain View, California. His show in Redding, California will be rescheduled to September 8.
