Loretta Lynn Cancels Two Upcoming Concerts
Fans hoping to see Loretta Lynn in Iowa will have to wait a little longer. The legendary country star has canceled planned appearances in the Hawkeye state in July, the Des Moines Register reports.
Lynn was supposed to perform at Hoyt Sherman Place in Des Moines on July 7 and Dubuque's Five Flags Center on July 21, but both venues announced on Facebook that the shows are canceled, citing "circumstances beyond our control" as the reason. The Five Flags Center anticipates that the concert at their venue will be rescheduled sometime in 2018.
