NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Country music star Loretta Lynn has postponed shows after suffering injuries in a fall that will require minor surgery.
Lynn’s injuries were described as not serious, but a statement posted on her website on Wednesday said her doctors have advised her to stay off the road until she’s made a full recovery.
That means her Friday night concert at Renfro Valley in Mount Vernon and two other September concerts have been postponed. According to Renfro Valley’s Facebook page, the concert has been rescheduled to Dec. 8.
“More than anything we wish Loretta a quick & speedy recovery, and our thoughts are with her!” the Renfro Valley post said.
The 84-year-old singer and songwriter was not able to perform during a Labor Day weekend show at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee.
The “Coal Miner’s Daughter” released her first studio album in a decade earlier this year, called “Full Circle.” She continues to tour regularly.
