Loretta Lynn has decided to cancel the rest of her 2017 tour dates after suffering a stroke earlier this year. She is also pushing back the release of her newest album Wouldn’t It Be Great until sometime next year. It was scheduled to be released next month.
In a statement on her website she says, “Thank you so much for all of your prayers, love, and support. I’m happy to say that I’m at home with my family and getting better by the day! My main focus now is making a full recovery so that I can get back to putting all of me into what I love, sharing my music with all of you.”
The 85 year old country music legend has no plans to stop touring yet. Her statement continued, “I’m just letting everybody know that Willie (Nelson) ain’t dead yet and neither am I, and I can’t wait to see all of you on the road!”
After working hard for almost 60 years, we think she deserves a little rest and relaxation. Looking forward to hearing more from Loretta soon!
