T.G. Sheppard is now recovering after undergoing a heart procedure Tuesday January 13th.  The country star’s wife, Kelly Lang, reports on Facebook that Sheppard that after “a marathon day” everything was going “well” and T.G. was “doing great.”  She also says they both appreciate all the support they’ve received from their fans, adding “prayers make such a difference.”  The 70-year-old singer had been suffering from an irregular heartbeat, which prompted the medical attention.

Prior to the surgery, Kelly said they’d been informed that it’s considered “somewhat minor,” but is still a lengthy procedure.  Sheppard was previously hospitalized in 2012 with a severe bladder infection, which spread to his bloodstream and affected his heart rate.  The singers haven’t said if T.G.’s current health problem stems from that earlier infection.
