Grand Ole Opry legend Lynn Anderson is recovering after a minor car accident that occurred last Friday (Nov. 22) while she was en route to the George Jones tribute concert in Nashville.

While heading to meet her agent, Lynn's SUV blew out a tire, causing her vehicle to leave the road and skid into the gravel. No critical injuries occurred, but the accident left Lynn rattled and with a "pretty good cut" on her head.

"I was so looking forward to singing with my girls and singing the praises of the great Possum," Lynn said in a statement addressing her absence from the concert lineup.

Luckily for Lynn, a good Samaritan witnessed the accident and called an ambulance to the scene. "Next thing I knew, I was headed to a local hospital, and after two days, I was released and I’m on the road to recovery," added Lynn. "I would like to extend a personal thank you to the gentleman that came to my aid Friday evening. However, I did not even get his name as things were happening so quickly. If you are that person, would you please connect with me on Facebook or Twitter. I would like to thank you in person. I recently had just undergone surgery to install a pacemaker and was a new user of blood thinners. Because of his actions, I will be able to make a swift recovery. I definitely have a lot to be thankful for this holiday season."

Look for Lynn to hit the road in 2014 in support of her upcoming Gospel project.
