Loretta, who is famous for songs including The Coal Miner's Daughter, released her first studio album in a decade this year called Full Circle. She continues to tour regularly.

Loretta'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 singer and songwriter was not able to perform during a Labour Day weekend show at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee, and three upcoming shows in September have been postponed.
