Country legend Loretta Lynn has been hospitalized with pneumonia but is "doing well," according to her official website.

"Doctors have diagnosed her as [having] the beginning stages [of] pneumonia," according to a post on the site. She has canceled weekend shows in Ashland, Ky., and Durham, N.C.

"Loretta is doing well and is disappointed but feels confident she will be ready for upcoming November dates," according to the post.

Lynn, 76, whose autobiography was adapted to become the 1980 film Coal Miner's Daughter starring Sissy Spacek, canceled shows in August due to knee surgery, the Associated Press reports.



Before that, the Kentucky native returned to live performances with a show at the Grand Ole Opry after being forced to cancel shows in Ohio and Connecticut because she was hospitalized for heat exhaustion.

A rep for the singer had no comment.
