    Oh no! Country singer-songwriter Chris Young, who will release A.M. on September 17, is in a Denver area hospital with a leg infection. At press time, he was listed in stable condition.

    Last night's (August 14) headlining show in Kalispell, Montana was cancelled as were his performances on Brad Paisley’s Beat This Summer Tour Presented by Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, which were set for today, August 15 in Penticton, BC; August 16 in Mission, BC; and August 17 in Brownsville, Oregon.

    Young is expected to resume touring in Redding, California on August 21.

    While the origin of the infection is unknown, Young will remain in the hospital for at least the next 24 hours. Chris was en route to Kalispell when the symptoms set in and he was taken by ambulance to the hospital.

    "I'm so sorry to disappoint the fans but I didn't even know I was sick," the adorable singer said. "One minute I was fine, then suddenly I'm being rushed to the hospital. I look forward to being up and around and back on the road."

    Get better soon, Chris! Take care of that leg.
