Country star Heidi Newfield is recovering after being involved in a car crash in Destin, Florida.

The TRICK PONY singer and sports agent husband Bill Johnson were driving home when their car was involved in a collision with another motorist on 19 July (04).

Newfield sustained neck and back injuries and her husband sustained multiple fractures in his left hand, but the singer is refusing to let her injuries keep her from touring with the hit trio.

She says, "I am getting back to work. I am pretty stiff

and sore on my right side because I have a torn ligament in my shoulder.

"I try not to show it to the crowd each night because the show must go on, but thank God for painkillers."
