Loretta Lynn Misses Labor Day Concert Due to Fall
Loretta Lynn's annual Labor Day concert was missing the country icon herself this year. The singer suffered a fall earlier in the week, causing her to cancel her appearance.
Fans on Lynn's Facebook page report that when they showed up for the Labor Day show, which takes place each year at Lynn's Hurricane Mills, Tenn., ranch, they were informed that the 84-year-old singer had fallen and injured herself earlier that week and would not be performing. Rare Country reports that, during the event, Lynn's sister, Crystal Gayle, read a note to fans from Lynn that explained "I injured my chest and can’t get a deep enough breath to sing, but I’ll update you Monday (Sept. 5) after I see the doctor.”
Lynn has not yet shared an update on her condition. In Lynn's place, Gayle and Lynn's twin daughters Peggy and Patsy performed, even breaking out several of Lynn's hits. According to the event calendar on Lynn's website, her next concert is scheduled for Sept. 9.
Lynn is on the road promoting her newest album, Full Circle. The project earned Lynn her highest-ever chart debut on the all-genre Billboard 200 following its release on March 4. The record is available via Amazon and iTunes.
