(UPI) -- Country star Loretta Lynn is postponing two Iowa shows until a later date because of exhaustion.

According to a representative quoted on her website, “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.”

Lynn will undergo treatment for her exhaustion and is rescheduling both shows.

The Queen of Country may have been exhausted by a string of tour dates north of the border in Canada. The tour is celebrating a fifty-year music career.

She played at the South Okanagan Events Centre in Penticton, British Columbia on Oct. 24 and reportedly put on quite a show.

"This is your show whatever you want to hear holler it out. It doesn't mean I'm going to sing it, it just gives you a good chance to holler," Lynn told the audience. "We all need something to holler about."

She also told the audience that she got her start in Canada. She cut her first single at Zero Records in Los Angeles with the help of a Canadian who discovered her and set up the recording session.

"And that is exactly what it made us, zero," she said.

The 81-year-old suffered two broken ribs about a month and a half ago, but her performance seemed to remain unaffected.
