Jesse McReynolds Recovering and Taking It Easy at Home!

Image635113200535377225Jesse McReynolds, Grand Ole Opry Legend and a member of the Bluegrass Hall of Fame, Master mandolin pioneer and bluegrass songwriter par excellence, is at home and wearing a heart monitor after being diagnosed recently with an irregular heartbeat.

He still maintains a touring schedule, after celebrating his 84th birthday in July.  His doctors have asked him to keep a low profile while they determine whether he needs to have a pacemaker installed.  Jesse’s wife Joy tells us that he is feeling well.

“He is up and about, but trying not to overdo it until we get a handle on this. The hardest part for an active guy like him is taking it easy.  But he’s playing his mandolin and taking advantage of this time to practice and write new songs.

We appreciate everyone’s prayers!”
