    Loretta Lynn is having knee surgery. Therefore, the country legend is canceling all upcoming tour dates. A statement on the matter was released, saying that the country music icon is nixing dates all the way up to her September 3rd show at her own ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee.

    The Coal Miner's daughter is scheduled to undergo reconstructive knee surgery and needs time to recover, since knee surgery is certainly not something that's minor. Anyone who has had the surgery knows it's a pain in the ass to recover from.

    In her statement, Lynn describe herself as "sad" that she has to cancel the shows, but she is conceding to doctor's orders, saying, "they tell me I've just got to stay off this knee for a while." Rest up and get well soon, Loretta!

    Who is your favorite country singer of all time?
