Country singer and songwriter, Loretta Lynn has reportedly been admitted to the hospital after suffering from a stroke.
A statement on behalf of the 85-year-old country music legend was released to her official Facebook page Thursday afternoon.
Issued at around 5:30 p.m. CDT, a spokesperson for Lynn reveals Lynn had been admitted into a hospital in Nashville last night after suffering a stroke at her Hurricane Mills home in Tennessee.
The statement goes on to say, “She is currently under medical care and is responsive and expected to make a full recovery.”
However, doctors have advised her to “stay off the road while she is recuperating,” meaning she will have to postpone several of her upcoming shows across the U.S.
Lynn was expected to perform at the Alabama Theater on Saturday and Penn's Peak next week.
Lynn is no stranger to health ailments. Over the past few years, the 85-year-old has experienced bouts of pneumonia and been treated for exhaustion.
In April, she celebrated her birthday by playing two sold-out shows at the Ryman Auditorium. While she is scheduled to return to the Ryman in August, fans are encouraged to visit her website for more information regarding rescheduling after this unfortunate event.
She has a new album coming out this summer, titled Wouldn’t It Be Great.
