About a week and a half after suffering a stroke at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee, steely 85-year-old Loretta Lynn is already being moved from the hospital. ABC News reports that the country-music legend has entered a rehabilitation facility where she can continue to work on her recovery. A new statement was posted on her website, LorettaLynn.com:

Loretta wants to thank everybody for their prayers love and support.

Loretta has been moved from the hospital facility in to rehabilitation and we’re happy to report she is doing great!

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 had been planning on touring in support of her latest studio album, Wouldn’t It Be Great, which is still scheduled for release on August 18. Her previous release, Full Circle, her first studio album in over a decade, was produced by Patsy Lynn Russell and John Carter Cash and came out in 2016.
