NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Country music legend George Jones has been discharged from a Nashville hospital following several days of treatment for an upper respiratory infection.

A publicist for Jones said The Possum was admitted last Thursday and remained under hospital care until Tuesday.

Jones' wife, Nancy, reached out to fans Thursday afternoon on Facebook, writing, "would everyone please remember George in their prayers."

Jones, 80, canceled a show a few days ago in Illinois, and he is not scheduled to be back on tour until late April in Minnesota.

No other details have been released.
