Veteran country star Loretta Lynn called off two shows over the weekend after breaking her ribs in a fall at her home.

The 78-year-old singer suffered a nasty accident at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee as she was attempting to take a guitar down from a closet prior to a show at her ranch on 31 August.

Lynn managed to perform, but was subsequently diagnosed with two broken ribs and ordered to rest up.

In a post on her Facebook.com page, she writes, “I’m like an accident waiting to happen these days. I was trying to get my guitar down out of my closet, and the dang thing fell on top of me, causing me to fall into my dresser. All this happened right before my big Labor Day concert at my ranch in Hurricane Mills. I didn’t know how bad I hurt myself until the next day. Come to find out, I had broken two of my ribs… I hate more than anything to have to miss shows, but it’s something you just have to do.”

Lynn scrapped two shows in Oklahoma on Friday and Saturday. The concerts have been rescheduled for December.
