Loretta Lynn purple

It’s been a long time since we’ve seen Loretta Lynn in the Tri-Cities area, and a lot of fans were very disappointed when it was announced yesterday that she will not be on stage at the 2016 Rhythm & Roots Festival in Bristol, as originally scheduled.

A statement issued to the press said that said she is “at home recuperating from a recent fall that left her unable to perform on Labor Day weekend at her ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee. 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”.

Much to the disappointment of her fans, she has also had to cancel other shows as a result of this fall.  We’re sure all fans understand, and wish her a full and speedy recovery.  As for Rhythm & roots, that festival will go on as scheduled, Sept. 16-18, and a replacement for Loretta has not yet been named.
