Tanya Tucker was recently forced to cancel and/or reschedule her remaining concert dates for July, due to undergoing emergency hip replacement surgery on Wednesday (July 14).
On Thursday (July 15), she updated fans on her recovery process.
“Hey Loves, My hip has been giving me hell for awhile now and the docs discovered a hip fracture,” Tucker said via a social media statement. “I had to have surgery right away. The operation went well and I’m on track for a speedy recovery. I’ll be at home healing for a few weeks, but can’t wait to get back out and see you as soon as I can. I LOVE y’all and a bad hip can’t keep me down! Love, Tanya ❤️🌹 We’ll let you know more information when we can.”
A representative for Tucker previously told WDIO about the concert cancellations, saying, “It is with regret that we have to cancel all shows for the remainder of July as Tanya has been admitted to the hospital today for an emergency hip replacement surgery as an MRI has revealed a hip fracture that requires immediate attention. We truly appreciate you.”
Tucker was scheduled to perform as part of the Country Thunder Wisconsin festival in Twin Lakes, Wisconsin, as well as at Lake Superior Big Top Chautauqua in Bayfield, Wisconsin and at Sugar Creek Casino in Hinton, Oklahoma.
