George Jones Home After Short Hospital Stay

Our Country

Country music legend and Hall of Famer George Jones was admitted to the hospital on Wednesday--but not to worry. He's back home and doing just fine.

Jones, who is 79, reportedly checked in to a Nashville-area hospital for a routine annual checkup and was required to stay overnight for monitoring. He was fully expected to leave the following morning, and did return to his home on Thursday.

Jones made light of the visit, joking that he didn't feel like driving home in the cold, so decided to spend the night.

According to his official website, he's "feeling fine" as of Thursday and was turning his mind to weekend plans.

"He'd begun concerning himself with important issues, like the big NFL playoff game coming up Sunday afternoon between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Green Bay Packers," noted a release on his site.

If you're wondering which team Jones has his money on, he's picking Vick. "I think the Eagles, with home field advantage and home field noise, will have to be my pick," he stated.

Jones will be next performing in February, when he'll hit the First Council Casino in Newkirk, Oklahoma on the 4th. He'll play Nashville's famed Ryman Auditorium March 12.

Glad to hear you're feeling good, George. And enjoy the game!
