Loretta Lynn Moves to Rehabilitation Following Recent Stroke

Country Music Hall of Fame Member Hospitalized Since May 5

Country Music Hall of Fame member Loretta Lynn is undergoing therapy at a rehabilitation center after being hospitalized in Nashville for a stroke she suffered on May 5 at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee.

The news was posted Monday afternoon (May 15) via social media.

A note on her official website added, “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.”

Famous for hits such as “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” “You Ain’t Woman Enough (To Take My Man),” “Don’t Come Home A’Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ on Your Mind),” “Fist City” and “Your Squaw Is on the Warpath,” Lynn was elected to the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1983 and the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1988.

Grand Ole Opry member Crystal Gayle, Lynn’s youngest sister, posted an update last week.
