Miranda Lambert had high hopes that her doctor-ordered vocal rest -- which caused her to reschedule a few concerts last week -- would be brief, but unfortunately, the singer has been forced to cancel three concerts in Alabama and Georgia that were scheduled for this coming weekend.

While it doesn't make the news any less disappointing, fans will still be able to see Lambert this year, as she has booked makeup dates for those canceled concerts this October.

“I’m so sorry to disappoint the fans that have already bought tickets to see me,” the 'Over You' songstress wrote in a statement on Tuesday afternoon. “I’m taking care of my voice, and I can’t wait to get on the road again and bring you a hell of a show.”

Stay tuned to Taste of Country for the latest developments in Lambert's heath situation, including when she will be back out on the road and any other dates she will be rescheduling in the meantime.

Miranda Lambert Tour Rescheduled Shows:

10/4 - Orange Beach, Ala.
