HILL CITY, US (AP) — Country singer Wynonna Judd announced Sunday that she is postponing concerts scheduled in Canada next week after her husband was hurt in a motorcycle accident in South Dakota.

Judd and her husband, Michael “Cactus” Moser, were riding separate motorcycles north on US Highway 16 in the Black Hills on Saturday when Moser crossed the centre line and hit a car. Moser, 55, of Nashville, Tennessee, was airlifted to Rapid City Regional Hospital with serious but not lifethreatening injuries.

Judd was riding ahead of her husband and was not involved in the crash. The car’s driver was not injured.

Moser was cited for crossing the centre line and not having a motorcycle licence.

Judd cancelled her Saturday night show in Deadwood, a resort town in the Black Hills. Her website showed four concerts scheduled next week in Canada.

“The outpouring of prayer and support from friends, family and fans has been a blessing to both Cactus and I,” she said yesterday in a statement. “Cactus is a champion. I love him deeply and I will not leave his side.”

The couple was married in a private family ceremony in June in Leipers Fork, Tennessee.



Do you think an increase in JUTC bus fares is justified at this time?
