Chris Young hospitalized with leg infection of unknown origin
Singer has cancelled four shows as a result of the illness
RCA Records Nashville artist Chris Young has been hospitalized in the Denver area as a result of a leg infection. He is listed in stable condition, and the origin of the infection is unknown. Young will remain in the hospital for at least the next 24 hours.
The singer was en route to tonight’s show in Kalispell, Mont., when the symptoms set in and he was taken by ambulance to the hospital. The singer has now cancelled several tour dates, as well as an interview that had been scheduled for today with MSN.
His publicist released this statement, attributed to Young: “I’m so sorry to disappoint the fans but I didn’t even know I was sick. One minute I was fine then suddenly I’m being rushed to the hospital. I look forward to being up and around and back on the road.”
In addition to tonight’s headlining show in Montana, Young has cancelled his appearances on Brad Paisley’s “Beat This Summer Tour” on Aug. 15 in Penticton, B.C.; Aug. 16 in Mission, B.C.; and Aug. 17 in Brownsville, Ore. He is expected to resume touring in Redding, Calif., on Aug. 21.
In addition to touring, Young has been busy promoting his upcoming fourth album, “A.M.,” due out Sept. 17.
Many years ago, my aunt & uncle took a road trip, at one point found a snake in the car, in time no one was hurt. I was in Florida recently, my sister has a large cactus. I was taking care of the garden,
I was jabbed in the stomach & various other places. I am treating only with Neosporin. Starting to clear now, It"s been 2 weeks now. I truly hope you don"t have to suffer. Hope you get to your concerts in great health!
Geez all you arm chair "medical experts" can't even spell! It's MRSA not Mersa. It stands for Methicillin Resistant Staph. Aureus.
I forgot 1 thing! 20% of the population s allergic to Neosporin! Who knew?
I just spent the last 3 months of my life with a "leg infection" that turned out to be an allergy to Neosporin! I'm sure he has great Dr's, but get an infectious disease Dr on board, made all the difference in the world! Overnight better! Well wishes and God bless for a speedy recovery!
