Nearly a week after celebrating his 95th birthday, cementing his status at the oldest living former president, Jimmy Carter bumped his head in a fall as he got dressed for church on Sunday, which required him to get 14 stitches.

Just hours after his accident at his home in Plains, Georgia, Carter discussed the incident Sunday in Tennessee at a concert to rally volunteers ahead of his 36th home building project for Habitat for Humanity, Politico reported.

Video shared by the Associated Press on YouTube shows Carter appearing on stage with his wife, Rosalynn, 92, at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. Country singer Trisha Yearwood, who introduced the Carters, called the couple the hardest working volunteers.
