Loretta Lynn out of hospital, recovering at home

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Loretta Lynn is out of the hospital and
resting at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tenn.

A statement Monday from Loretta Lynn Enterprises says the
country music icon has been treated for bacterial pneumonia. The
76-year-old was forced to cancel a show in Ashland, Ky., on
Saturday because of the illness.

She woke up on her tour bus around 1:30 a.m. Saturday having
difficulty breathing. She was treated at a Bowling Green, Ky.,
hospital over the weekend and released.

"It was one scary night," Lynn says in the statement.

She says she's feeling better and will return to the road Nov. 3
in Knoxville, Tenn.
