NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Tanya Tucker is postponing tour dates after fracturing a vertebrae and injuring a rib during a fall while on tour.

A statement from her publicist says Tucker was also diagnosed with bronchitis while in a hospital in Texas. The statement says Tucker is receiving breathing treatments and physical therapy but will not need surgery.

The “Delta Dawn” singer rescheduled three tour dates in Kansas and Oklahoma. But Tucker, 58, said in a statement that she’s “mad” the accident happened and will make it up to fans.

Tucker’s hits include “Soon” and “Strong Enough to Bend.”

Tucker was scheduled to perform at Northern Quest Resort & Casino in October, but canceled that appearance due to illness.
