    Grand Ole Opry star Charlie Daniels is recovering after having a pacemaker implanted on Thursday, March 28 at a Nashville area hospital.

    During a doctor's visit on Monday of this week, the country icon 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.

    He plans to be released from the hospital on Friday, March 29. The family asks for your thoughts and prayers for Charlie as he recovers. He will spend the next two weeks at his home.

    "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."

    Rest up and get better soon, Chuck!

    Did you end good thoughts and prayers out to Charlie Daniels?
