Charlie Daniels In Recovery After Successful Pacemaker Implant Surgery

Posted by Kristina Burton on 04/01/2013
Grand Ole Opry star Charlie Daniels is recovering after having a pacemaker implanted at a Nashville area hospital.
During a doctor visit on Monday (3-25), Charlie was diagnosed with a mild case of pneumonia and admitted to the hospital for a series of routine tests. The tests revealed that a pacemaker was needed to regulate his heart rate.
The family asks for your thoughts and prayers for Charlie as he recovers. He will spend the next two weeks at his home.
Charlie recently celebrated 5 years as a member of the Grand Ole Opry, where he is a regular performer.
“I just had not been feeling well and wanted to get checked out,” says Daniels. “I am thankful the doctors found the problem and were able to implant a pacemaker to get my heart rate regulated. I am feeling so much better and looking forward to spending Easter with my family.”
Two CDB concert dates, Englewood, NJ (4-5), and Newark, OH (4-6) have been cancelled and will be re-scheduled. Charlie will resume his touring schedule with an appearance in Lynchburg, VA on April 11th and continue his tour schedule with the following dates:
Verona, NY (4-12), Chester, WV (4-13), Opry (4-18), Vidalia, GA (4-20), Wilkesboro, NC (4-25), Florence, SC (4-26), Priceville, AL (4-27), Indio, CA (4-28)
