Loretta Lynn, the country music star, is postponing two of her upcoming Iowa shows due to exhaustion. Lynn’s representative said that the 81-year-old singer began feeling tired during the third week of her tour and is due to take some much needed time off.
The statement said: “Lynn started feeling poorly midway through her three week tour. Loretta is a pro and wants to give her fans the best show possible. She felt she physically was unable to do that.“
The statement goes on to confirm that both of the Iowa shows are to be rescheduled. In 2012, Loretta Lynn also postponed two shows to have physical therapy after a knee operation. And back in 2011 she was hospitalized with pneumonia.
It seems that Lynn is very resilient and apparently bounces back from the health issues she has suffered in her later years. Last month she needed to cancel a number of concerts in Oklahoma as a result of not one, but two broken ribs.
Loretta Lynn was born on April 14, 1932 and has had an illustrious and successful career. She enjoyed many chart-topping, multi-gold-albums as a country music singer-songwriter. Her work spanned more than four decades officially and she has written six books, the majority of which are autobiographies.
Loretta Lynn’s current tour is a tribute to her 50 years of performing country music. Her next concert is scheduled for November 14 in North Tonawanda but it remains to be seen whether or not she will be fit enough physically to perform.
