George Jones Breaks Foot

George Jones broke his foot Thursday (April 18) when he slipped at a Nashville area fast food restaurant. Concerts Friday (April 19) in Tyler, Texas, and Saturday (April 20) in Muskogee, Okla., have been rescheduled for May 4 and May 12, respectively. Jones lost his footing and twisted his ankle but did not discover that he had broken his foot until several hours later, when pain and swelling prompted him to have it x-rayed. He’ll be in a foam boot brace for six weeks. Jones resumes his regular touring schedule next Friday and Saturday (April 26-27) in Myrtle Beach, S.C. He performs a special concert June 11 for troops at Fort Campbell, Ky. 04/19/02
