Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Country star George Jones has been hospitalized in Nashville.

Jones postponed weekend concerts in Atlanta and Salem, Va., after doctors admitted him to the hospital on Thursday.

A news release said Jones had a fever and irregular blood pressure during a routine checkup.

The 81-year-old singer, considered one of the genre's greatest singers, is in the midst of a yearlong goodbye tour that wraps up in November in Nashville. He has occasionally canceled or postponed shows in the last year because of health issues.
