It seems as though Bret Michaels will make it to the Big Apple to face off against Holly Robinson Peete on The Celebrity Apprentice – despite a detour.
Having boarded a New York City-bound flight Sunday in Arizona, the rocker's private jet first touched down in Nashville.
Michaels was "complaining of a headache, lower back pain and some cramping in his legs," sources at the airport tell PEOPLE.
After a brief stop, Michaels, 47, re-boarded the aircraft and is currently en route to New York.

With the season finale of The Celebrity Apprentice a mere day away, Bret Michaels looks forward to attending the live broadcast of the show on Sunday night to compete for the title – though his main concern continues to be his health.
As Michaels works to regain his strength after suffering several recent scares – including a "warning stroke" and a brain hemorrhage – the musician, 47, is careful not to take any "undue risks" with his recovery process.
"Bret is a very passionate person and refuses to live his life curled up in a ball wondering if or when something else might happen," the rocker's spokesperson Janna Elias said in a statement posted to Michaels' official Web site Friday.
