Singer Loretta Lynn Hospitalized

Country music legend Loretta Lynn, 76, was hospitalized over the weekend after showing the early stages of pneumonia.

The ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter’ singer, who still keeps a packed performance schedule, was forced to cancel her shows in Durham, N.C. and Ashland, Ky. this weekend.

“Loretta is doing well and is disappointed but feels confident she will be ready for upcoming November dates,” said a statement posted on the singer’s website.

Calls to Lynn’s manager were not immediately returned.

In August, Lynn cancelled shows due to knee surgery. Prior to that, the singer was also hospitalized for heat exhaustion.

Lynn became a force in Nashville’s country music scene in the 1960s, and scored her first number one hit in 1967.
