Green recovering from appendectomy


WACO, Texas -- Pat Green was out of the hospital and resting with family Friday after an emergency appendectomy earlier in the week.

The country singer was admitted Wednesday to a Dallas-area hospital and released late Thursday, publicist Heather Bohn said.

"He's now with family and resting, so he's doing really well," Bohn said Friday.

Green grew up in Waco and lives in Fort Worth. With a dedicated following in Texas, he has been working to build his fan base around the country. His most recent album, "Cannonball," was released in August 2006.

Doctors advised Green to cancel a New Year's Eve concert as well as several days of planned studio work in Nashville, Tenn., Greg Henry, president of Austin Universal Entertainment Inc., said in a story Thursday on the Waco Tribune-Herald Web site.
