Country music legend Willie Nelson has bounced back after he was hospitalised due to breathing problems over the weekend.
The 79-year-old pulled out charity performance in Colorado on Sunday because he was ‘suffering from breathing problems due to the high altitude and emphysema.’
But he seemed in good spirits as he greeted by fans ahead of his House Of Blues show in New Orleans, Louisiana, last night.
When asked about his health, the On The Road Again singer replied: ‘I’m feeling good, thanks.’
On Sunday, Fred Bartlit, who was hosting fundraiser event for Denver Dumb Friends League, told the Denver Post: ‘I was told Willie woke up and had trouble breathing, so he was taken to the hospital.’
The event was being held at Mr Bartlit’s home in Castle Pines Village.
Music legend Willie was inducted into to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1993 after a storied career.
He wrote his first song when he was aged just seven, and went on to have 25 hit No 1 singles on the country music charts.
He has also acted in 30 films, wrote several books and was a 1998 recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors.
Willie hit the headlines last year when his 2010 Texas marijuana possession case descended into farce.
After jokingly saying he should sing for the court, prosecutor Kit Bramblett reached a deal that would see him plead guilty to drug paraphernalia possession and pay a fine of $500.
Judge Becky Dean-Walker initially agreed to the deal, before changing her mind after deciding he was getting special treatment due to his fame. The case is currently in limbo, and may never be prosecuted at all.
