Famous musician Elle King posted an Instagram story Thursday informing fans that she had fallen and suffered a concussion, forcing her to cancel some upcoming shows.

The Grammy nominee told her 387,000 Instagram followers that she slipped while making a bottle for her son and fell down the stairs, resulting in a concussion, according to People. “No one ever wants to pull out of shows, especially me,” King wrote.  “I live for performing. I slipped down the stairs making a bottle in the middle of the night, knocked my ass out, resulting in a concussion,” King wrote on Instagram, according to People. “I tried to push through and played 3 shows, but the travel, lights, all of it only exacerbated things,” she said.

King expressed her apologies for the cancelations as well as deep gratitude for all the support she has received.

“I’d like to thank the artists that stepped in and filled my slots, as well as the radio stations for their understanding and continued support,” King said.

Canceled shows include performances in Tampa, Detroit and Seattle, with King promising to use the time off to replenish her energy and get some much needed rest. Shows previously scheduled to take place mid-January, February, and March remain on the roster at this time.

“I wish you all happy and healthy holidays and I can’t wait to get back out next year and sing with you soon,” King concluded in her message, according to People.

King’s upcoming country album “Come Get Your Wife” is slated for release Jan. 27 and will be her first full-length record in nearly five years.
