George Jones admitted to Nashville hospital

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Country music legend George Jones has been admitted to a Nashville hospital for observation Thursday after a routine checkup.

A publicist for Jones said the 81-year-old was admitted after he was running a slight fever with irregular blood pressure.

Jones' shows this weekend in Atlanta and Salem, VA, have been postponed until a later date.

No other details have been released.

Jones was hospitalized for several days in March 2012 for treatment of an upper respiratory infection.

He is in the midst of a yearlong goodbye tour that wraps up in November in Nashville.
