Another Donnie Carver update from Russell Moore

The news continues to be good regarding the health of IIIrd Tyme Out sound man Donnie Carver after having suffered a pair of heart attacks earlier this month.

When we last heard from 3TO leader and lead singer Russell Moore, he reported that Donnie’s recuperation was running ahead of schedule and that they were hopeful of having him join them on the road again soon.

Russell spoke with Donnie again yesterday (1/12), and sent along this update…

“I just got off the phone with Donnie and, aside from the expected and normal soreness and tenderness associated with having stent surgery, he’s feeling good and glad to be at home!! He said that everything went really well with the surgery and that he should be ready to travel with us when we go to Waterford, Michigan at the OCC Highland Lakes Campus and then on to Clay City, Kentucky’s Meadowgreen Park Music Barn on January 22nd & 23rd, respectively.

At this time, the only restrictions Donnie has, aside from a slight change in his diet, is no lifting of anything heavier than 5-10 lbs. for the next 6-8 weeks, but that’s normal procedure. We’re all excited about Donnie’s progress and want to thank all of you, again, for your thoughts and prayers!!!”

Wonderful news. Bluegrass Today joins all the many fans and friends of IIIrd Tyme Out in wishing a speedy recovery to this true road warrior.
