Scruggs Falls At Gig

Earl Scruggs took a nasty spill as he walked off stage during a November 26th concert at South Carolina’s Myrtle Beach Convention Center.

Scruggs, 81, was taken to an emergency room and received 12 stitches above his eye. He was released the same night.

Apparently, Scruggs couldn’t see that he was about to fall because of bright stage lights.

“He is in good spirits and seems to be in good shape, considering the four-foot fall,” Scruggs representative DJ McLachlan told Pollstar.

At press time, the musician was being examined by doctors in Nashville and awaiting test results.
