Country singer Waylon Jennings, hospitalized at Western Medical Center in Santa Ana, is feeling better and is expected to be home in Nashville by this weekend, his publicist said Wednesday.
Jennings, 51, was admitted first to Tustin Community Hospital after playing the first of two scheduled shows Monday night at the Crazy Horse Steak House in Santa Ana. According to Fred Reiser, co-owner of the club, Jennings complained of weakness and shortness of breath. He was transferred Tuesday to Western Medical Center, where Reiser said a battery of tests showed no evidence of any heart disease. Reiser said doctors put Jennings on medication as a precaution but told him Tuesday that he should be able to leave the hospital and resume full activity in a day or two.
Bridget Dolan, a spokeswoman for Jennings, said he will return to the stage at a Nov. 6 show in Mobile, Ala.
