George Jones postpones more shows due to health
Country star George Jones postpones shows through May 20 to recover from respiratory infection
By The Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) ' Doctors are ordering George Jones to postpone all tour dates through May 20 to recover from an upper respiratory infection.

A statement from Jones' publicist, Kirt Webster, says the 80-year-old singer is resting at his home near Nashville. He spent about a week in the hospital last month receiving antibiotics for the infection.

Jones is delaying his entire Canadian run in May as well as a show in Caruthersville, Missouri. He had already postponed concerts on April 20 and 21 in Minnesota and South Dakota.



The Country Music Hall of Fame member posted a video on his website Wednesday thanking fans for their prayers and the "wonderful ways" they have stood by him. He said he was on his "way back for sure," adding that he only needs time.
