What a way to kick off your vacay.

Grammy-winning musician James Taylor Monday suffered a broken leg and injured his shoulder on day one of his Utah ski vacation, The Associated Press reported.

But that didn't stop him from having a good time, apparently. According to the Boston Globe, doctors made a splint that allowed Taylor to stay on the slopes.

Earlier this month, Taylor was honored with a National Medal of Arts.

The “Sweet Baby James” singer was one of 20 artists, scholars and writers feted at the White House by President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama.
