ET has reached out to Nelson’s rep.

Last August, the country crooner cited altitude for an abruptly ended performance in Salt Lake City, Utah.

“This is Willie. I am sorry to have to cut the SLC show short tonight,” he wrote on Twitter. “The altitude got to me I am feeling better now and headed for lower ground.”

Breathing issues have plagued Nelson for several years. In 2012, the musician was hospitalized in Denver, Colorado, for respiratory issues.

Get well soon, Willie.
