I haven't seen Loretta Lynn lately. Does she still tour?
—Ann H., Kentucky

Loretta Lynn, 65, was treated for pneumonia earlier this spring after working almost nonstop for the last two years. In September, she released a new CD titled Still Country and was promoting it before she got sick. Lynn also made an appearance at the Grand Ole Opry's 75th anniversary last fall. She performs about 70 shows annually and had a concert special on A&E in March. Lynn is writing her second book, the follow-up to her hugely successful Coal Miner's Daughter, which became a movie. She opened a museum at her ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tenn., on May 26.
