Lynn Anderson has a great excuse for missing the George Jones tribute concert last Friday: she was in a car accident.
Lynn says on her Facebook page her SUV blew its front right tire as she was on her way to the show and she went off the road and into gravel. She says she got “a pretty good cut” on her head. A passer-by saw the accident and called an ambulance.
“I regret that I was unable to make the George Jones Tribute Concert last Friday. I was so looking forward to singing with my girls and singing the praises of the great “Possum.” Unfortunately, my trusty old SUV blew a front right tire on the way to meet my agent and head for Bridgestone Arena. It left the road, and I ended up in the gravel, giving me a pretty good cut on my head.
A good Samaritan saw me leave the road and immediately called an ambulance. Next thing I knew, I was headed to a local hospital and after two days I was released and I’m on the road to recovery. I would like to extend a personal thank you to the gentleman that came to my aid Friday evening. However, I did not even get his name as things were happening so quickly. If you are that person, would you please contact PLA or connect with me on Facebook or Twitter. I would like to thank you in person. I recently had just undergone surgery to install a pacemaker and was a new user of blood thinners. Because of his actions, I will be able to make a swift recovery. I definitely have a lot to be thankful for this holiday season and look forward to the premiere my new Gospel project and hitting the road in 2014. Thank you for my family, fans and friends for sticking with me and being so supportive.”
Lynn was released from a hospital after two days.
