Last Thursday night was not a good night for country music stars.  Thursday evening, while country legend Loretta Lynn was being rushed to a Nashville hospital after having a stroke, in New York City Jennifer Nettles was falling off a stage.

Nettles was to perform at a private show Thursday night when she tripped over a lighting fixture.  Nettles didn't have a chance to start the show.  Witnesses say she fell onto a concrete floor.  Jennifer said to everyone around that she thought she'd broken a rib.  Turns out she had.

The country music princess took to twitter to explain that she was in severe pain and thanked the urgent care workers, EMTs, doctors and nurses.  She went on to say it was the very first time in 20 years she'd ever fallen off a stage.
