Last Tuesday (Aug. 13), while en route to a concert in Montana, country star Chris Young was rushed to a Denver hospital after a small cut on his leg turned into a dangerous bacterial infection. He’s been released from the hospital and will return to the road tomorrow (Aug. 22).

According to a release from his team, Young began to go into septic shock and was immediately started on medications to stop the infection from spreading. An emergency surgery was scheduled for the next day where doctors removed the infection from his leg. Throughout his ordeal, Young kept fans up to date on his condition from his hospital bed.

Currently home under his physician’s care, his doctor advised Young to take a week off before he returns to the stage. Tomorrow, he will rejoin Brad Paisley‘s Beat This Summer Tour, something he no doubt is grateful for.

“I want to thank all of my fans for their thoughts and prayers,” Young said in a statement. “I received amazing care from Dr. Suarez, Dr. Gill and Dr. Canfield and all the I.C.U. nurses who literally saved my life. I’m happy to be home and can’t wait to get back out on the road.”

Young’s upcoming album, album A.M., is still scheduled for a Sept. 17 release.
