Loretta Lynn is continuing to recover after suffering a fall that caused her to pull out of her hometown Labor Day concert over the weekend. In order to fully recover from her injuries, the country legend has been forced to reschedule even more tour dates.

In a post on her official website, Lynn’s team explained that she is resting at home on doctors orders.

“Although her injuries are not serious, she will be undergoing minor surgery and Loretta’s doctors have advised her to stay off the road until she’s made a full recovery,” the statement reads.

So far, Lynn has pulled out of her shows scheduled in Renfro Valley, Ky., Newell, W.V. and Bristol, Tenn. She also will not be able to perform her set at the Grand Ole Opry, originally scheduled for Sept. 20 in Nashville.

Country fans may be a little worried about the 84-year-old’s condition, especially after the loss of fellow country legend Merle Haggard earlier this year. However, Lynn’s decision to stay off the road is a positive one. We’re likely to see her back on the live stage sooner rather than later.
