Loretta Lynn Out Of Hospital, Recovering At Home

Loretta Lynn is out of the hospital and resting at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tenn.

A statement Monday from Loretta Lynn Enterprises says the country music icon has been treated for bacterial pneumonia. The 76-year-old was forced to cancel a show in Ashland, Ky., on Saturday because of the illness.

She woke up on her tour bus around 1:30 a.m. Saturday having difficulty breathing. She was treated at a Bowling Green, Ky., hospital over the weekend and released.

“It was one scary night,” Lynn says in the statement.
