She gave no details on Nelson’s sickness, but said he plans to be back on the road again for a February 16 concert at a San Antonio rodeo.

It’s the second time in recent weeks the 83-year-old country legend has missed shows because of sickness — he cancelled two of his five shows in Las Vegas in late January because of a bad cold.

The singer-songwriter behind hits like On The Road Again told the AP recently that he’ll release a new album this spring called God’s Problem Child.
