NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Loretta Lynn is postponing two shows in Iowa because of exhaustion.

Her rep says Lynn started feeling poorly about halfway through what was to be a three-week tour — and is taking time off to be treated.

Lynn is 81 — and recently finished a tour of Canada.

A statement from her people says both the shows in Iowa will be rescheduled.

Last year, Lynn postponed two shows to undergo more physical therapy following total knee replacement surgery.
