Listen to Chris Young on iHeartRadio

Chris Young is going back to work just days after leaving the hospital. He will resume touring this Thursday in Mountain View, California.

The singer has been recuperating from a bacterial infection resulting from a small cut on his leg. Chris was admitted to a Denver hospital while on his way to a show in Kalispell, Montana last Tuesday after going into septic shock. Doctors scheduled emergency surgery on August 15th which removed the infection from Chris’ leg. They also advised the singer to wait a week after surgery to resume touring.

He rejoins Brad Paisley’s “Beat This Summer” tour on Thursday. His show that was cancelled in Redding, California has been rescheduled for September 8th.

Chris thanks his fans for their prayers and support, and says he cannot wait to get back out on the road.
