Country star Loretta Lynn hurt in fall, requires surgery

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) " Country music star Loretta Lynn has postponed shows after suffering injuries in a fall that will require minor surgery.

Lynn's injuries were described as not serious, but a statement posted on her website on Wednesday said her doctors have advised her to stay off the road until she's made a full recovery.

The 84-year-old singer and songwriter was not able to perform during a Labor Day weekend show at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee, and three upcoming shows in September have been postponed.

The "Coal Miner's Daughter" released her first studio album in a decade earlier this year, called "Full Circle." She continues to tour regularly.
