Country music singer James Otto has canceled two upcoming concerts after he was admitted to a hospital in Tennessee with abdominal pains. The star checked into a medical facility in Nashville on Tuesday, September 7, less than a month after his wife Amy gave birth to the couple's daughter Ava on August 24.

In a statement, Otto reveals he had been "feeling badly on and off for a while now but didn't think it was serious", adding he "may have been a bit distracted by all the excitement of baby Ava's arrival". As a result of his illness, Otto has scrapped his weekend gigs on September 11-12 in Clarksville, Tennessee and Berea, Ohio.

Otto says he will be down for a few days but hopes to be back in action soon.
