Doctors have amputated country singer Waylon Jennings' left foot because of an infection related to diabetes, according to a spokesperson for the artist. The surgery was done Dec. 19 in Phoenix; the spokesperson declined to discuss details.

Jennings, 64, postponed two Arizona concerts in early November after undergoing surgery to improve circulation in one of his legs. He suffers from peripheral vascular disease that has made it difficult for him to walk in recent years.

He is expected to return to live performing in the spring.
