Leon Russell is recovering from a heart attack he suffered last week. Russell is currently in stable condition and is scheduled for surgery in Nashville.
Many shows across the country have been postponed while Russell recovers.
Russell began his solo career in the late 1960s and began touring on his own and collaborating with many musicians. He recently released an album of covers titled, “Life Journey.”
He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame in 2011.
There is no word yet on when the postponed shows will be rescheduled.
