Loretta Lynn Schedules Surgery After Fall

Postpones Three September Shows

Loretta Lynn has postponed three September shows following a fall that affected her Sept. 3 concert at her ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee.

A message on her website says her injuries are not serious and she is scheduled to undergo minor surgery. Doctors have advised her to stay off the road until she makes a full recovery.

The dates postponed until further notice are Friday (Sept. 9) in Renfro Valley, Kentucky, Saturday (Sept. 10) in Newell, West Virginia and a set at the Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion in Bristol, Tennessee on Sept. 17.

Fans are encouraged to visit her website for updates on the rescheduled events. The next shows on her tour schedule are two nights at Gruene Hall in New Braunfels, Texas on Sept. 23.

The country legend released her first album in 10 years titled Full Circle on March 4 six weeks before her 84th birthday on April 14. Her daughter Patsy Lynn Russell and family friend John Carter Cash produced the 14-song collection, which opens with the first song she ever wrote, “Whispering Sea” and closes with the Willie Nelson duet, “Lay Me Down.”
