My Morning Jacket singer injured during show

Jim James has been released from the hospital after being hurt in a fall

IOWA CITY, Iowa – My Morning Jacket singer-guitarist Jim James has been released from the hospital after being injured in a fall during a concert at the University of Iowa.

A Cedar Rapids newspaper reported that James slipped and fell about 30 minutes into the show Tuesday night. The Gazette says James apparently hit his head in the fall, which happened between songs.

The rest of the concert by the Southern rock group was canceled.

Spokesman Tom Moore of University Hospitals said Wednesday that James, whose real name is James Olliges Junior, was treated and released.
