Rolling Stone reports that country music legend Loretta Lynn has been forced to postpone several tour dates after suffering a stroke last night in her Tennessee home. Lynn is currently in the hospital, although her official web site promises that she’s expected to make a ”full recovery.”

Lynn—who just turned 85—has been advised by doctors to cut back her extensive touring schedule, postponing all of her currently scheduled shows. Her latest studio album, Wouldn’t It Be Great, is due out on August 18.
