A back problem has forced Dolly Parton to postpone a concert tour she planned in support of her new CD.

Parton was scheduled to kick off a 13-show tour Feb. 28 in Minneapolis, two days after the release of "Backwoods Barbie," her publicist said Monday.

Doctors advised Parton to take up to eight weeks off to recover from the unspecified problem.
