Joe Nichols has back surgery!

The show must go on!

Just 3 weeks ago, Joe Nichols, underwent a significant back opeartion due to injuries sustained from doing a lot of long distance running.  Doctors had to go in and cut away some bone from one of the bottom vertebras & remove some ligaments, sounds fun huh?

The operation was performed on June 30th; and the doctor's orders were.... "I want you pretty much on your back for at least two weeks and your healing time should take about three months.” But Joe told the doctor, “I gotta work.  I gotta go back to work on Friday.  I have babies to feed.  I can’t just not do anything for two weeks.”

Joe was bound and determined to go back to work; the doctor told Joe, “I highly advise you not to do that,” but said with a bit of a laugh, I told him, ‘The show’s gotta go on.  I highly advise myself to do it.  I’ll be in pain, but it’ll be worth it, because like I said, I’ve got babies to feed.’”

Joe did not spend the 2 weeks on his back as the doctor suggested, he was back on stage just 4 days after the operation.  Joe says the most difficult thing about the operation is not being able to pick up his 2 year old daugher, Dylan!  Joe says she keeps running up to him arms out wanting to be picked up, but he just can't do it!
