Chris Young Recovering from Surgery; Cancels CMA Fest Performance


Chris Young is home recovering from surgery after accidentally cutting his left hand with a kitchen knife while while preparing a late night dinner. He had just returned from hosting his annual fan club party on the General Jackson showboat.  The singer/songwriter underwent surgery in Nashville yesterday to repair the injured tendons and was forced to cancel a four-hour autograph session at his booth.

Released from the hospital Friday morning, the 28-year old announced the cancellation of his scheduled performance at LP Field tonight to play for tens of thousands of fans at CMA Music Festival in Nashville. He is expected to fully heal and will return to playing guitar following his recovery and rehabilitation.
