According to her website, Loretta Lynn has been released from the hospital today (Oct. 24) and is resting at home. She was hospitalized over the weekend in Bowling Green, KY with early stages of pneumonia.
She was scheduled to perform Saturday night (10/22) at the Paramount Arts Center in Ashland, KY and Sunday in Durham, N.C., but was unable to attend. The shows are expected to be rescheduled.
A weekend post Lynn’s website says, “Loretta regretfully must cancel her shows for Ashland, KY and Durham, NC for this weekend, due to illness. Doctors have diagnosed her at the beginning stages (of) 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.”
The iconic entertainer had knee reconstruction surgery in August and was forced to cancel shows from in July after severe dehydration caused her to be hospitalized.
