Tanya Tucker is recovering in a Nashville hospital after suffering an upper respiratory infection while on her North American tour. Tucker became ill before a date in South Dakota and was treated by local doctors before heading back to Nashville. As a result, six shows will be postponed (tour dates below).

“I cannot apologize enough to all the fans who bought tickets and were looking forward to seeing us on the road. I just feel terrible, but I’ll get even worse if I don’t take care of myself. I love you all,” Tucker said.
