Trace Adkins had emergency surgery for an abdominal infection after a concert in Morton, Minn., last week.

Doctors said the surgery was successful and Adkins is expected to make a full recovery, his publicist, Schatzi Hageman, said Saturday.

The 43-year-old country singer had been suffering from stomach pain for two days and decided to go to the hospital before heading out to the next stop on his tour, Hageman said. The surgery was Friday.

Concerts in Spencer, Iowa; Hutchison, Kan.; Ashland, Ohio; and Centreville, Mich., were canceled.

A member of the Grand Ole Opry, Adkins’ hits include “(This Ain’t) No Thinkin’ Thing,” “Chrome” and “Then They Do.” His latest album is “Songs About Me.”
