Jennifer Nettles Says Not to Worry After Tumble Onstage

"First Time for Everything," She Says

On her way to the stage at this year’s Time Inc. New Fronts event at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom on Thursday (May 4), Jennifer Nettles took her very first — and hopefully her very last — fall in all her years as a performer.

Nettles took to Twitter shortly after her accident and her visit to the hospital to assure her fans that she’d be all right, and to thank everyone she’d encountered in the emergency room.

She tweeted her thanks to the medical team and conveyed the level of pain she was experiencing.

“Thank you to everyone, first responders, emt’s, and everyone at the hospital. Dr. Mordel and all the nurses. I am so grateful for you!”

“EMT: On a scale of 1-10 how bad does it hurt? Me: It’s not having a baby, but it’s close. Off to rest now.”

Her sense of humor is obviously still intact, as evidenced by this post from Friday.
