A statement on her website informed fans, "Around 1:30 AM Saturday morning, Loretta awoke on her tour bus complaining that she was having a hard time breathing. They admitted her into a Bowling Green, Kentucky hospital where she was treated over the weekend for the beginning stages of bacterial pneumonia."

She's now back home and resting and will next appear on Nov. 3 to perform in Knoxville. "It was one scary night," she says, "But I am feeling better and just gonna take it easy for a couple of weeks."
