“Willie Ain’t Dead Yet And Neither Am I,” Loretta Lynn Cancels 2017 Dates, Postpones Album

Loretta Lynn

Country legend Loretta Lynn has canceled the last of her 2017 tour and postponed her Wouldn’t It Be Great album release until 2018 due to doctors orders.

“I am getting stronger every day and can’t wait to get back out there with all of you,” said Lynn in a post on her website and social media. “I’m just letting everybody know that Willie ain’t dead yet and neither am I, and I can’t wait to see all of you on the road!”

The news, confirmed by MusicRow, comes after the announcement this May that Lynn was recovering from a stroke just weeks after her 85th birthday. Over a dozen future outing cancellations now come on the heels of already a dozen shows missed by the recovering entertainer this year.

The forthcoming album was to be released by Legacy Recordings (a division of Sony Music Entertainment) on August 18. More news is expected about the album and tour as it becomes available.
