Loretta Lynn Health Update: Singer Begins Rehabilitation After Suffering Stroke
After suffering a stroke over a week and a half ago, country singer Loretta Lynn has been moved from the hospital to a rehabilitation center.
“Loretta has been moved from the hospital facility in to rehabilitation and we’re happy to report she is doing great,” a brief statement read on Lynn’s official website.
Lynn had a stroke in her Hurricane Mills, Tennessee, home on May 4 and was immediately taken to a hospital in neighboring Nashville, approximately an hour away. Hurricane Mills is centered around Lynn’s ranch.
Although she is on the road to recovery, the 85-year-old four time Grammy winner – including a Lifetime Achievement Award – will be unable to perform several upcoming shows.
“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,” the website read.
Lynn’s forty-first studio album, Wouldn’t It Be Great, is set to be released on August 18. Lynn, known sometimes as “The Coal Miner’s Daughter,” is the most awarded female country musician in American history.
