Country legend Charlie Daniels is recovering today after undergoing rotator cuff surgery Monday morning. The singer — who is very active on Twitter — let his fans know via his team that he’s doing fine and he’d be back online soon.

“Charlie’s rotator cuff surgery went very well! He is in recovery and will be going home soon. Thank you for all the prayers! – Team #CDB,” the message from his social page reads.

Daniels performed his final show of 2012 last Monday (Dec. 10) in Las Vegas, Nev. According to his website, his schedule is clear until March. He first let fans know of the surgery on Sunday. “I’m having rotator cuff repair in the morning and have to be there at early 30 probably won’t make the whole game,back on twitter Tue I hope,” he said.

This is at least the second procedure Daniels has had this year. In April, he underwent Smart Eye Surgery to restore his failing eyesight. Aside from suffering a minor stroke in January 2010, the ‘The Devil Went Down to Georgia’ singer has been relatively healthy in recent years.
