Reba is currently on vocal rest

Reba’s health woes come after she paid tribute to the late country music icon Loretta Lynn, who died “peacefully” in her sleep aged 90 last month.

Reba wrote an emotional and lengthy tribute on Instagram which pulled at the heartstrings of her followers, as she also remembered her late mother too.

It read: “Mama and Loretta Lynn were four years apart, Mama being the oldest. They always reminded me a lot of each other. Strong women, who loved their children and were fiercely loyal.”

She continued: “Now they’re both in Heaven getting to visit and talk about how they were raised, how different country music is now from what it was when they were young. Sure makes me feel good that Mama went first so she could welcome Loretta into the hollers of heaven.”

Reba then added: “I always did and I always will love Loretta. She was always so nice to me. I sure appreciate her paving the rough and rocky road for all us girl singers.”
