Loretta Lynn has canceled her shows for this weekend. The 81-year-old has re-scheduled her planned appearances in Oklahoma after being injured in an accident at her home.

She broke the news in a Facebook post on Friday (Sept. 6):

I’ve had to cancel my shows in Oklahoma this weekend. I hate more than anything to miss shows, but sometimes you just have to.

I’m like an accident waiting to happen these days. I was trying to get my guitar down out of my closest and the dang thing fell on top of me causing me to fall into my dresser. All this happened right before my big Labor Day Concert at my Ranch in Hurricane Mills. I didn’t know how bad I hurt myself until the next day. Come to find out I had broken two of my ribs. We are rescheduling the shows now, I hate more than anything to have to miss shows, but it’s something you just have to do.

I just hope everyone comes back to see me in OK.

Lynn had better rest up. She recently announced that she’s working on multiple upcoming projects, including a possible reunion with producer Jack White. Later this year she will receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom, which is the highest civilian honor in America.
