AUSTIN, Texas (AP) _ Willie Nelson canceled four concerts after being treated for a broken blood vessel in his nose.
Nelson was treated Thursday in Lincoln, Neb. He is expected to rejoin the tour within the next week, his record company said Friday.
He called off performances in Lincoln, Neb.; Neosho, Mo.; Bonner Springs, Kan.; and Geneva, Minn.
Nelson has been on a U.S. tour since July 12 to promote his recent release, ``The Great Divide.″ The tour will continue into the fall and will include Farm Aid 2002.
Last month, Nelson got two Country Music Association Awards nominations: ``The Great Divide″ is up for best album, and ``Mendocino County Line″ with Lee Ann Womack for best vocal event.
