Country icon Loretta Lynn is down for a bit after breaking two ribs in an at-home accident. The singer postponed two shows in Oklahoma last weekend after taking a fall.
Lynn said in an official statement:
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.
Loretta's next scheduled show is Friday night in Daytona Beach, FL.
In other Loretta Lynn news, Rolling Stone recently reported that the singer would like to do another album with Jack White helming. Their 2004 LP, Van Leer Rose, was a critical darling.
Loretta told Billboard "I think I'm going to go after Jack White and give him another call to do another album." That, though, may not be her next project. She says she already has a Christmas album, a religious album and a set of mountain music ready to go.
