BOSTON (AP) — James Taylor says a broken leg won’t keep him off the slopes.

An assistant for the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter says Taylor fractured his left fibula and injured his left shoulder in a fall Monday on an expert trail while on a family vacation in Park City, Utah.

The accomplished skier was treated at a hospital and had a doctor fashion a movable split he hopes will fit in his boot and
allow him to ski later in the week.

Taylor, who lives in Massachusetts, says given all the problems in the world, his mishap was “nothing.”

Taylor was among 20 people honored by President Barack Obama earlier this month in a salute to the arts and humanities.

He is scheduled to host and perform at a Carnegie Hall benefit next month.
