The Associated Press reports than an ailing Loretta Lynn has canceled a weekend appearance at an Ohio music festival.
Oh no Double L! We hope ya feel better and quick.
The website for the Jamboree in the Hills fest posted a message indicating that Lynn, 76, won't be taking the stage on Sunday because she was recently hospitalized for serious dehydration. A statement posted Wednesday says the singer was treated following a period of extreme heat in Tennessee, where she lives.
Lynn is quoted as saying she's sad to have to cancel any shows and that she was looking forward to seeing her fans.
The festival will carry on with the likes of Miranda Lambert, Tim McGraw and Toby Keith. It's a four-day show which kicked off on Thursday in Belmont in eastern Ohio.
Get well soon, Loretta.
