Tanya Tucker, 62, has canceled and rescheduled additional concerts after undergoing emergency hip surgery in July. 

The GRAMMY-winning singer shared an update with fans on social media on Wednesday (Aug. 4) and shared that she’s making progress in her recovery but revealed that she isn’t quite ready to get back on the road just yet. 

“I’m just overwhelmed by all the flowers, love and support since I had hip surgery. The doctors want me to rest a few more weeks before we get back on the road,” she shared. “I want you to know every day I feel stronger, better and ready to kick some ass. We’ll see y’all real soon. I promise.”

Tucker underwent surgery in July and quickly updated fans on her status after returning home. 

“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!”
