Country legend Loretta Lynn has cancelled multiple tour dates as she continues to recover from a stroke.
The 85-year-old star was scheduled to perform in Sioux Falls, S.D. on July 8 and Dubuque, Iowa on July 21. Both of those concerts have been canceled due to “unforeseen circumstances.” So far, it is unclear if the cancellations are directly related to her health and if any of her other upcoming tour dates are also affected.
On May 5, Lynn was hospitalized in Nashville after suffering a stroke in her Hurricane Mills, Tenn. home. She left the hospital a week later and since has been undergoing rehabilitation treatments. The stroke forced Lynn to reschedule multiple tour dates during the month of May.
Although the cancelled dates have not been rescheduled, the venues say that they plan to welcome Lynn back sometime in 2018.
Lynn will release her new studio album, Wouldn’t It Be Great, on Aug. 18. One week later, she’ll be the latest artist to have their own exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame. Fans can visit her display at the museum beginning on Aug. 25.
