Today, Grammy Award-winning quartet Little Big Town unfortunately suffered a major setback, as guitarist/vocalist Jimi Westbrook is set to have surgery on his vocal chords to remove a polyp. The band released the following statement via Facebook:
“With heavy hearts we want to let you guys know that Jimi will have to undergo surgery next week to remove a polyp on his vocal cord. As a result, doctors have ordered him to rest his voice and completely recuperate before we continue touring. All shows through July 30th will be cancelled or rescheduled.
It breaks our hearts to let you guys down, but Jimi’s health is the most important thing and he is expected to make a full recovery with rest and treatment. We will keep everyone updated on Jimi’s progress. Thanks for your understanding and support. – K,K,J & P”
Information on ticket refunds and rescheduled tour dates will be made available imminently.
All of us at Country Fried Media are sending our thoughts and prayers to Jimi and the band. Get well soon, Jimi!
