Loretta Lynn Hospitalized with Pneumonia
The only chance I ever had to see Loretta Lynn was in the late 90s in Reno once at a casino show. It was one of the most enjoyable concerts I’ve seen!
Loretta Lynn is currently in the hospital with pneumonia, according to TMZ. The 76-year-old country music legend was scheduled to perform a concert tonight (Oct. 22) in Ashland, Kentucky. That has since been postponed and will be rescheduled “in the near future,” according to the venue’s website.
This news comes just a month after Lynn underwent knee surgery and was forced to cancel eight concerts in order to have time to recover. While the ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter’ legend has not made an official statement regarding her current illness, we assume it must not be too serious, because the Paramount Arts Center is promising a rescheduled show “as soon as possible.”
Lynn has another concert scheduled for Sunday night (Oct. 23) in Durham, N.C., but no official cancellation had been made at press time.
Get well soon, Loretta — we’re sending you a virtual balloon!
