Country music legend Loretta Lynn is "feeling great" and planning a trip to her home in the Bahamas over the holidays, according to her daughter Patsy Lynn Russell.

Reports have circulated on the Web about Lynn's declining health after she canceled her four remaining shows this year because of the flu.

Russell says Lynn will return to the U.S. in late January to resume touring.

She will head to Los Angeles at the end of January to receive her Lifetime Achievement Grammy from the Recording Academy. Other honorees at the Jan. 30 ceremony include Michael Jackson, Leonard Cohen, Bobby Darin, Andre Previn, and Clark Terry. They will also be recognized during the Grammys on Jan. 31, airing live on CBS.
