Country star George Jones breaks wrist, cancels SC show

(Nashville, TN-AP) October 21, 2006 - Country singer George Jones broke his right wrist Saturday and had to cancel three concerts scheduled over the weekend, including one Sunday at the South Carolina State Fair.

Jones's record label Bandit Records says the 75-year-old singer was going into his producer's studio in Nashville to sing on his daughter Georgette Jones' record when he struck the awning support over the front door.

Jones fell down a couple of stairs and hit the cement walkway, breaking the fall with his right hand and fracturing his wrist.

Jones was treated at Baptist Hospital in Nashville and will undergo surgery Monday to make sure the wrist heals properly.
