Loretta Lynn is going strong after suffering multiple injuries within the last year.
The 86-year-old initially planned to release Wouldn’t It Be Nice in August 2017, but had to push back for her health. She’s now feeling great, and announced the official Sept. 28 drop date, reports Sounds Like Nashville.
“This new record means so much to me. This last year I had to focus on my health and I decided to hold up the release,” Lynn wrote in a press release. “I’m feelin’ good and look forward to it comin’ out. It was really important to me to be a part of it being released. I’m excited to celebrate with everybody!”
The singer suffered a stroke last year, which caused the initial postponement. As she was recovering, she had a nasty fall in January, breaking her hip. Thank goodness she’s alright now!
Can’t wait to hear the new album! We’re sure it’s worth the wait.
