T.G. Sheppard Hospitalized Again With ‘Very Serious’ and ‘Severe’ Blood Infection

T.G. Sheppard is back in the hospital just weeks after being released from a Nashville-area facility. According to a Facebook post from his wife, singer-songwriter Kelly Lang, the veteran entertainer is suffering from a “severe” blood infection.

Sheppard, who placed a string of 10 No. 1 hit singles on the country charts during his prime in the ’70s and ’80s, still tours actively at age 68. But in October, just days after a performance at the Reunion of Professional Entertainers banquet, he was admitted to the hospital with a bladder infection that progressed into his blood stream, as well as causing an elevated heart rate.

The ‘Devil in the Bottle’ hitmaker was discharged in mid-October, but apparently the situation is still dire. “Without going in to too much detail, TG has been admitted into the hospital again with severe blood infection,” his concerned wife posted to Facebook Tuesday morning (Nov. 6). She added, “It is very serious. We need prayers.”

There is no further information available at this time. Please join us at Taste of Country in extending our prayers and well wishes to T.G. Sheppard and his family in their time of need.
