Country singer Loretta Lynn broke her shoulder in a fall at her home and was scheduled to have shoulder replacement surgery, a spokesman said Wednesday.

Lynn, 71, injured her left shoulder Sunday. She was expected to have the surgery Thursday at a Nashville hospital and go home to recuperate, spokesman William Smithson said in a news release.

The injury forced the cancellation of nine concerts scheduled in June and July. In February last year, Lynn was forced to cancel a pair of shows in Oklahoma and Texas because of pain from a back injury.

Lynn is a three-time Grammy winner best known for her autobiographical hit "Coal Miner's Daughter" and songs like "Rated X," "The Pill" and "Don't Come Home A' Drinkin' (With Lovin' on Your Mind)."
