In September, the Oklahoma native updated her website, detailing her medical condition and her decision to stop performing: "I never really kept track but I am told that I've recorded over one thousand songs on more albums than I can remember. Live performances all over the world gave me the chance to meet so many fans who found joy in what came very naturally to me. For all that I am truly grateful."

"Over the past year and a half I have not focused on performance or recording but have been more attentive to the doctors, nurses and thoughtful caregivers who have been helping me face several medical challenges," she continued. "Throughout my life I never really gave much thought to my senior years. I was always able to hop on a plane, go out on stage and make music with the band. At this point I am no longer able to do that."
