GEORGE JONES HURT IN FALL

Country legend George Jones broke his right wrist in a fall at his producer’s studio Friday, Oct. 20, in Nashville and will require surgery.

The 75-year-old singer was going into the studio to record vocals for his daughter Georgette Jones’ album when he bumped into an awning and fell backwards down a couple of stairs, hitting a cement walkway. George broke the fall with his right hand and ended up fracturing his wrist. George was taken to Nashville’s Baptist Hospital where he received a wrist X-ray and a CAT scan to ensure that he did not suffer a head injury. He will undergo surgery on Monday, Oct. 23, to make sure the wrist heals properly.
