Lorretta Lynn said to be resting after successful shoulder surgery

Singer/songwriter Lorretta Lynn (71) is reported to be resting in her hospital room following a shoulder surgery at a Nashville hospital.

Lynn broke her left shoulder on Sunday at a fall in her home, and is expected to be released from the hospital after the weekend. The singer will then continue to heal at her home.

The injury (which happened on Sunday, June 4th) has forced Lynn to cancel nine concert dates that were scheduled for the summer. The singer was also forced to cancel dates in February due to a back injury.

Lynn released “Van Lear Rose” in 2004 which saw the country music icon team with Jack White (of the rock band the White Stripes). The album went on to earn five Grammy nominations for the singer.
