On Thursday night, Country music legend Loretta Lynn suffered a stroke at her Tennessee home and has been taken to a Nashville hospital for care.
The current condition of the 85-year-old is not known at present.
Fans were devastated to hear the news and are anxiously awaiting more information. The music star is “currently under medical care and is responsive,” her website notes. Very few additional details are available.
We do know that her upcoming music tour will be either canceled or postponed. Lynn is in relatively good health for her age, and her family and friends are praying that she will recover.
Please send prayers to her family during this trying time.
Upcoming events on her tour schedule will be postponed; more information on those dates will be posted on Lynn’s website (LorettaLynn.com) in the coming days.
In April, Lynn celebrated her 85th birthday by playing two sold-out shows at the Ryman Auditorium. She’s scheduled to return to the Ryman in August; those concerts will coincide with the release of her forthcoming album Wouldn’t It Be Great.
