Country music legend Charlie Daniels underwent surgery to have a pacemaker implanted yesterday (March 28th) at a Nashville area hospital and plans to be released from the hospital today.
Daniels visited the doctor on Monday and was diagnosed with a mild case of pneumonia. He was admitted to the hospital for routine test and the test revealed that the country star needed a pacemaker to regulate his heart rate.
"I just had not been feeling well and wanted to get checked out," says Daniels. "I am thankful the doctors found the problem and were able to implant a pacemaker to get my heart rate regulated. I am feeling so much better and looking forward to spending Easter with my family."
His planned upcoming performance at MTSU's Murphy Center in Murfreesboro, TN, as part of the World Outreach Church Easter service, has been cancelled so that he can recover.
Two CDB concert dates, Englewood, NJ (4-5), and Newark, OH (4-6) have been cancelled and will be re-scheduled. Charlie will resume his touring schedule with an appearance in Lynchburg, VA on April 11th and continue his tour schedule with the following dates: Verona, NY (4-12), Chester, WV (4-13), Opry (4-18), Vidalia, GA (4-20), Wilkesboro, NC (4-25), Florence, SC (4-26), Priceville, AL (4-27), Indio, CA (4-28)
