    U.S. President Barack Obama (R) presents the 2010 National Medal of Arts to musician James Taylor during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House, on March 2, 2011 in Washington, DC.

    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.
