(CBS/AP) WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Folk musician Doc Watson is in critical condition at a North Carolina hospital after falling at his home earlier this week.

A spokeswoman at Baptist Hospital in Winston-Salem says the Grammy winner remains in critical condition Friday morning.

Watson's daughter, Nancy, says the 89-year-old Watson fell Monday. She said he did not break any bones.

The blind singer and guitarist, whose legal first name is Arthel, has won several Grammys, including a lifetime achievement award. He also has received the National Medal of the Arts.
