Singer Loretta Lynn has postponed two of her shows in Iowa due to exhaustion.

A statement on the 81 year old's website explains the singer fell ill after the Canadian leg of her current North American tour and is taking time off to rest.

A statement from Lynn's representative, reads, "Lynn started feeling poorly midway through her three week tour. Loretta is a pro and wants to give her fans the best show possible. She felt she physically was unable to do that."

In September (13), Lynn was forced to scrap two Oklahoma shows after breaking two ribs in a fall at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee.
