Loretta Lynn’s Home Damaged by Fire

Loretta Lynn

A small fire broke out at Loretta Lynn’s residence in Hurricane Mills, Tenn., on Tuesday (2/25)  morning.

It is not known if Loretta was home when the fire started but, Emergency Management officials say everyone inside the house was able to get out safely.

According to Nashville television station WTVF, the fire started in the building where Lynn lives, not the antebellum mansion on the same property where she and her husband raised their family. That building has been turned into a tourist attraction.  Some reports say the cause of the fire was a candle that caught a chair on fire that was extinguished quickly.

Last year, another fire destroyed the cook shack on Loretta’s property.

Loretta Lynn Postpones Shows Due to Illness



Loretta Lynn is postponing two shows in Iowa because of exhaustion. Her rep says Lynn started feeling poorly about halfway through what was to be a three-week tour — and is taking time off to be treated.

Lynn is 81 — and recently finished a tour of Canada. A statement from her people says both the shows in Iowa will be rescheduled. Last year, Lynn postponed two shows to undergo more physical therapy following total knee replacement surgery.

Loretta Lynn Recovering From Broken Ribs



Loretta Lynn was forced to cancel her shows this weekend because she’s still hurting. Lynn writes on her Facebook page she tried to get a guitar down from a closet over Labor Day and it caused her to fall into a dresser. She says she didn’t find out until the next day that she had broken two ribs. Lynn had scheduled two shows in Oklahoma this past weekend and plans to make them up at a later date.

Wishing her all the best and a speedy recovery.

Recent occurrences at the Loretta Lynn Ranch in Hurricane Mills, TN – including storm damage and a fire in the commercial kitchen – have forced organizers to postpone the popular Loretta Lynn’s Bi-Annual Trail Ride that was set for September 2-7, 2013.

The trails are currently “under construction” and ranch workers are concerned with the safety of the beloved guests and campers.

“I hate to cancel this ride,” said Loretta Lynn. “This is one of my favorite things we do at the ranch but Mother Nature sure dealt us a big blow with the recent storm and then we had the fire and it really set us back. We are trying to make sure everyone is safe and that’s our main concern. We sure hope to have everything back in order soon for more trail rides. I’ve been putting on the big organized trail rides for 30 years now and I ain’t about to stop … we just need a little more time.”

All other events at the Loretta Lynn Ranch – including the weekend Wrangler camp – will proceed as scheduled. Guests  may inquire by calling 931-293-7700. Organizers will announce a new trail ride date as soon as possible.

Country Music sensation Kacey Musgraves is the next guest artist to perform at the ranch on August 30. Musgraves Mercy Nashville debut album, Same Trailer Different Park, was released on March 19 and hit the No. 1 position on the Billboard Country Chart and No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart. It’s evident that critics and fans alike have fallen in love with the voice of Kacey Musgraves and that voice will ring through the hills when steps onto the historic stage of the Loretta Lynn Ranch.
