North Mississippi Allstars Bassist Chris Chew Hospitalized

North Mississippi Allstars bassist Chris Chew was recently hospitalized in Portland, OR. It is believed that Chew is suffering from complications from diabetes. A message from North Mississippi Allstars reads, “Our brother Chris Chew is currently in a hospital in Portland, OR. Thank you all for your love and support, please continue to send your thoughts and prayers to Chew and his family.”

Chew went on hiatus from North Mississippi Allstars earlier this year to focus on his other career as a truck driver. The rest of North Mississippi Allstars are slated to perform as part of The Word at Bonnaroo this evening.

Get well big man. Also, what kind of truck driving job is so good you would pass up being bassist of NMA? You guys rock!

I believe he drives Tim McGraw’s tour bus, that’s gotta pay decent.

Very simply he drives a truck for the money. Makes much more than touring with NMA.
