Loretta Lynn Hospitalized After Suffering Stroke

Country music icon Loretta Lynn was hospitalized in Nashville, Tenn. after reportedly suffering a stroke while in her Hurricane Hills home on May 4, 2017.

USA Today reported that Maria Malta, a representative for Lynn, confirmed the news on May 5. That same day, Lynn's website featured a message regarding the singer's condition. "She is currently under medical care and is responsive and expected to make a full recovery," the post read. "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's sister, singer Crystal Gayle, released a statement to ABC News. "Many of you have heard that my sister, Loretta Lynn, had a stroke. She's a strong woman and I know she'll come out of this," Gayle, 66, said. "Our family appreciates your prayers, love and support. We pray for a speedy recovery."

The "Coal Miner's Daughter" singer recently celebrated her 85th birthday in April 2017 with two sold-out shows at the Ryman auditorium. That same month she announced that she'd be releasing a new album, entitled Wouldn't It Be Great, on Aug. 18, 2017.
