Lynn Anderson is on the mend following a car accident that occurred Friday, Nov. 22 while she was en route to perform at the George Jones tribute concert.

The songstress was on the interstate when a tire in her SUV blew out, causing her to skid into the gravel. While she thankfully escaped serious injury, she did suffer a large cut on her forehead.

“I regret that I was unable to make the George Jones Tribute Concert last Friday. I was so looking forward to singing with my girls and singing the praises of the great ‘Possum,'” she shares.

The ‘I Never Promised You a Rose Garden’ singer credits a passerby with helping her get medical attention so quickly. “A good Samaritan saw me leave the road and immediately called an ambulance. Next thing I knew, I was headed to a local hospital and after two days I was released and I’m on the road to recovery.”

The 66-year-old adds that she recently had surgery to install a pacemaker, and was using blood thinners, which led to her hospital stay. But Anderson is now recuperating at home, and ready to ring in the new year.

“I definitely have a lot to be thankful for this holiday season and look forward to the premiere [of] my new Gospel project and hitting the road in 2014,” she adds. “Thank you for my family, fans and friends for sticking with me and being so supportive.”

Anderson is looking for the gentleman who stopped and offered aid at the scene of the crash. She asks that anyone with information about him contact her here.
