Country music star Loretta Lynn requires surgery after fall

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Country music star Loretta Lynn has postponed shows after suffering injuries in a fall that will require minor surgery.

Lynn’s injuries were described as not serious, but a statement posted on her website on Wednesday said her doctors have advised her to stay off the road until she’s made a full recovery.

The 84-year-old singer and songwriter was not able to perform during a Labor Day weekend show at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee, and three upcoming shows in September have been postponed.

According to the statement, the following shows are postponed until further notice:

September 9: Renfro Valley Entertainment, Renfro Valley, KY September 10: The Harv at the Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack & Resort, Newell, WV September 17: Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion, Bristol, TN.

The “Coal Miner’s Daughter” released her first studio album in a decade earlier this year, called “Full Circle.” She continues to tour regularly.
