Due to illness, Lucy Hale had no choice but to cancel her debut performance at the Grand Ole Opry.

A statement released today (Feb. 21) said the 'You Sound Good to Me' singer has been battling flu symptoms all week. The performance, originally slated for tonight, will be rescheduled for a later date.

Lucy, a Memphis, Tenn. native, cited the invitation to perform at the revered venue as a "lifelong dream."

We hope she feels better soon!
