Loretta Lynn has canceled two concerts set for July in Iowa. The country legend’s July 7th show in Des Moines and a July 21st date in Dubuque were to be among her first since suffering a stroke in May.
“Due to circumstances beyond our control, the Loretta Lynn date scheduled for July 21st in Dubuque has been canceled,” read a statement on the Facebook page of Dubuque’s Five Flags Center. A similar statement appeared through the social media of the Hoyt Sherman Palace in Des Moines. No further information as to the reason for the cancellations was available.
But Lynn, who is said to be recuperating at a rehab facility, is apparently looking toward a return to performing. Her ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee, has announced a Motorcycle and Music Revival, set for September 28th through October 1st. The rally will feature motorcycle rides, camping and a concert closing the event, at which Lynn is slated to sing.
The Kentucky icon will release the new album Wouldn’t It Be Great on August 18th, the follow-up to last year’s Full Circle.
