REDDING, Calif. -

Folks who bought tickets to see country music singer, Chris Young will have to a wait a few more weeks.

Young postponed his show at the Redding Civic Auditorium on Wednesday to September 8th.

The singer was forced to cancel shows last week after being hospitalized with a leg infection that put Young into septic shock.

The singer's public relations teams released the following statement on behalf of the singer: “I want to thank all of my fans for their thoughts and prayers,” said Chris. “I received amazing care from Dr. Suarez, Dr. Gill and Dr. Canfield and all the I.C.U. nurses who literally saved my life,” he continued. “I’m happy to be home and can’t wait to get back out on the road.”

Young's latest hit, "Aw Naw" is currently climbing the country music charts.
