The singer tweets Saturday, "I feel like I got hit in my right side of my face with a baseball bat. Not a good feeling when I am getting on a plane. For all my fans at Wendover last night, the show will be rescheduled, not a cancelled show. Worst way ever to kick off a tour... under anesthesia and a massive infection. Well, onward and upward. It can only get better from here!!!"  

Rimes did manage to perform as planned on Saturday for two fundraisers, benefiting the Autry Museum and the Living Free Animal Sanctuary.

In a blog post titled, "No Fun," Eddie Cibrian's bride writes, "The ER at 3am, THAT is an interesting place to be. Feeling much better now, thanks to my husband's best friend who's an ER doc. I've been living in a dental nightmare for 10 months. I'm getting back on track though, I hope. ... Thank you all for your support and understanding.  The last 10 months of pain are hard for me to wrap my head around.  I'm sure it's difficult for you all to understand too. Let's just pray I'm on the mend. I'll see you all on the road very soon."
