The legendary Tanya Tucker says she is “doing well” after undergoing emergency hip surgery this week. 

The GRAMMY-winning country star, 62, revealed that her doctors recently discovered that she had a hip fracture and rushed her to surgery. Thankfully, the procedure was a success, however, she’s been forced to cancel a few upcoming appearances. 

“The operation went well and I’m on track for a speedy recovery,” Tucker wrote on her social media channels. “I’ll be at home healing for a few weeks, but can’t wait to get back out and see you as soon as I can. I LOVE y’all and a bad hip can’t keep me down!”
