On May 4th, Singer/Songwriter Loretta Lynn suffered a stroke that left her hospitalized and as of today her publicist has confirmed that she is still under hospital care.
Originally Lynn’s publicist released this statement in regards to the incident:
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.
Lynn is still under care but family and friends remain optimistic for her recovery.
Two of the long time country star’s shows have been postponed but the schedule remains solid past those two postponements so hopefully Loretta will be back up and raring to perform very soon!
