Grammy nominated singer Elle King has canceled a series of shows after suffering a concussion in a fall.

Elle King shared an update on social media Thursday (December 8) and apologized to fans for being forced to cancel scheduled shows.

“I share your disappointment that I had to cancel my radio shows this week. No one ever wants to pull out of shows, especially me. I live for performing,” King wrote.

She went on to explain details of the accident that injured her and left her unable to perform.

“I slipped down the stairs making a bottle in the middle of the night,” the 33-year-old musician said, adding that she knocked herself out and suffered a concussion.

“I tried to push through and played 3 shows, but the travel, lights, all of it only exacerbated things,” said King.

She collaborated with country singer Dierks Bentley in 2016 for “Different for Girls.” The song earned the pair a CMA Musical Event of the Year award, and garnered King a following within the country music fan base.
