NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Country music legend Loretta Lynn is postponing two shows in Iowa, including Tuesday night's show in Spencer and Wednesday night's show at the Paramount Theatre in Cedar Rapids, due to exhaustion.

A statement from Lynn's representative on the singer's website says Lynn "started feeling poorly midway through her three week tour" and is taking some time off to be treated for exhaustion.

She said Lynn, who just finished a Canadian tour, is rescheduling both Iowa shows.Tickets purchased for the Oct. 30 concert in Cedar Rapids will be honored for the new date, which is to be announced very soon, according to a news release.

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

Lynn was born in the coalfields of eastern Kentucky and chronicled her life in an autobiography and song, both titled "Coal Miner's Daughter."
