Pneumonia Forces Loretta Lynn to Cancel Shows
Country music singer Loretta Lynn is suffering from pneumonia, as a result of which, she has cancelled several of her shows. The media got to know of her illness after a Kentucky theatre where the 76-year old was scheduled to deliver a performance yesterday, suddenly made the announcement that the concert has been postponed for the time being.
The Rated X-crooner is currently being treated in a hospital.
Soon after the show’s cancelation, Lynn’s management posted a statement on her official website, which read, "Doctors have diagnosed her as the beginning stages pneumonia, and will continue to need rest. Loretta is doing well and is disappointed but feels confident she will be ready for upcoming November dates."
Her Sunday’s concert in Durham, N.C. has also been cancelled. According to her representatives, Lynn, who is also known as The Coal Miner's Daughter, will reschedule the cancelled shows as soon as she recovers from pneumonia.
This isn’t the first time that Lynn has been forced to cancel shows this year due to her poor health. Back in August, she had to undergo a major surgery on her knee, because of which several of her concert dates were cancelled and then rescheduled.
Lynn is widely known for her music that focuses on the problems of blue collar women. Some of her famous songs are: “The Pill,” “Don't Come Home A' Drinkin' (With Lovin' on Your Mind)” and “One's on the Way.”
