Hey Loretta people don’t want you to overdo your country music show touring, they want you to take the time to smell the roses and enjoy your rocking chair some. It’s no wonder you’re tired out and exhausted, you are constantly on the go touring. We love your country music songs and we don’t want you to get sick and we’ll not get to hear your great country voice for a period of time.
Lynn has had to re-schedule some of her upcoming shows due to exhaustion; it was revealed on Tuesday, October 29, 2013. She was feeling poorly midway through her three week tour according to her representative as was posted on Lynn’s website.
Lynn’s a real trouper and she desires to give her fans a great performance and show every single time she performs. “No” one can whine those songs out in a voice of truth like Loretta. When she finally confesses she feels physically unable to perform, she knows what she is feeling. Lynn is taking some time off to recoup from exhaustion and has postponed two shows in Iowa but she will re-schedule the dates at a later time.
It’s hard to believe Lynn is 81 years old and “still” touring but people wouldn’t have it any other way. She is the country voice people most love to hear as she belts out her legendary songs.
Lynn wouldn’t know how to act staying at home and not touring because she’s performed and travelled the majority of her life. She’s an act that has always won my heart because her life resembles mine a lot. My Dad was also a coal miner and we lived in a small country town in the hills of West Virginia. Lynn knows the struggles her Dad had to suffer being in the coal mine on a daily basis and I also knew the challenges.
Lynn has had some health issues and postponed some concerts last year after knee replacement and after a fall in her home in September 2013.
Lynn needs all the strength she can drum up to take a special trip to receive a 2013 Presidential Medal of Freedom along with other recipient’s. This is America’s highest civilian honor. The medal will be presented to her in a ceremony on November 2013 alongside this year’s other honorees, who will include Oprah Winfrey, President Bill Clinton and Chicago Cubs legend Ernie Banks.
In my opinion Lynn is country music’s greatest woman singer and performer. She has been performing since I was a young girl and there’s not been a song that didn’t touch my heart as well as people throughout the world. Many nights I’ve enjoyed lying on a cold linoleum floor listening to her music. Lynn is a “real” country icon and she’s earned her place in country music history. Lynn will forever be in my heart and soul.
