Get well wishes go out to Charlie Daniels , who had a pacemaker installed at Nashville area hospital Thursday. Charlie was diagnosed with a mild case of pneumonia and admitted to the hospital for a series of tests Monday. Those tests revealed that 76-year-old Charlie needed the pacemaker to regulate his heartbeat.  He expects to leave the hospital Friday and spend the next two weeks recovering at home.

Charlie says in a statement,  "I am feeling so much better and looking forward to spending Easter with my family.”

Charlie has been forced to postpone two shows in New Jersey and Ohio as a result of the surgery.  For a full list of upcoming dates, go to CharlieDaniels.com .
