Kentucky country music native, Loretta Lynn, suffered a stroke on Thursday, May 4th.  According to her website, she is expected to make a full recovery.  She recently celebrated her 85th birthday with two sold out concerts at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.

 

American country music legend Loretta Lynn was admitted into a hospital in Nashville last night after she suffered a stroke at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee.

She is currently under medical care and is responsive and expected to make a full recovery.

Loretta, who just celebrated her 85th birthday, has been advised by her doctors to stay off the road while she is recuperating. Regrettably, upcoming scheduled shows will be postponed.

For information on when shows will be rescheduled, fans are encouraged to visit LorettaLynn.com.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Loretta Lynn and her family.
