Dove Award-winning Christian contemporary musician (CCM) Jeremy Camp (46) had a successful heart procedure on Monday, March 11.

The report came from Camp’s wife, Adrienne Camp, former front-woman for Christian rock band The Benjamin Gate. “Hi guys, Adrienne here. Just wanted to give you an update on Jeremy,” she said.

“He’s resting and has to lay completely flat for a while,” Adrienne said, joking that Jeremy is “enjoying being spoon fed by me.”

“Surgery was a success but it’ll take a few months to fully heal,” she added. “We are beyond grateful for how you guys have cared for us in prayer. Also, so grateful for an incredible doctor and staff.”

In a video Camp posted over the weekend, he shared that he had been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation, which makes his heart go into “crazy rhythm.” Doctors performed cardiac ablation on Camp, inserting thin catheters through blood vessels in his leg up to his heart.

Camp shared that his condition started “affecting a lot of things,” including his performances. “Even tonight, I went into A-Fib on stage, and I had to cut the set short. So that was difficult,” he said.

The popular CCM artist is scheduled to embark on a 17-date tour called “The Theater Tour” with special guest Caleb & John. It is unknown whether Camp’s surgery will affect the tour.

Danny Gokey, fellow CCM artist and third-place finalist on “American Idol,” Season 8, posted on Camp’s Instagram, “Jeremy Camp is our CCM version of Chuck Norris. Jeremy’s surgery went well—But the doctors are recovering and need our prayers. Love you bro 💙👊🏼. Jeremy camp—maybe one of the strongest guys I know.”

Jeremy and Adrienne have been married for 20 years and have three children together.
