Singer, 82, postpones 2 concerts

– Country star George Jones has been hospitalized.

Jones postponed weekend concerts in Atlanta and Salem, Va., after doctors admitted him to a Nashville hospital on Thursday.

A news release says Jones had a fever and irregular blood pressure during a routine checkup.
