Loretta Lynn cancelled several shows over the summer due to knee surgery and dehydration.  Sadly, the ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter’ finds herself cancelling more shows.

According to her website, doctors have diagnosed Lynn with the beginning stages of pneumonia. In an official statement, Lynn’s camp says “Loretta is doing well and is disappointed but feels confident she will be ready for upcoming November dates.”

Surprisingly, Loretta Lynn is also nominated for a CMA award this November.  A nice honor, since most awards shows usually recognizes modern mainstream artists currently on country radio. The 76 year-old Country Music Hall of Famer is in the running for a crystal trophy against Brad Paisley, Zac Brown, Jason Aldean, and Kenny Chesney in the Musical Event of the Year category.

More impressively, the song is a re-make of her classic ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter’ with Sheryl Crow and Miranda Lambert.  We all hope that Loretta Lynn recovers in time to be a part of Country Music’s Biggest Night.  By the way, she was the first female to ever win a CMA in 1967 for Female Vocalist of the Year and the first-ever female to win the Entertainer of the Year award in 1972.
