The ever beloved country superstar singer Loretta Lynn has been hospitalized after serious stroke, according to the publicist.


Maria Malta, a publicist for Sony Music, confirmed that the 85-year-old singer and songwriter was admitted into a Nashville hospital Thursday night after suffering the stroke at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee.

According to the Friday afternoon post on her website, Lynn is “currently under medical care and is responsive and expected to make a full recovery.” 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.

Lynn celebrated her 85th birthday with two sold-out shows at the celebrated Ryman Auditorium in Nashville last month and has a forthcoming album planned for release in August titled "Wouldn't It Be Great." After joining the country music scene in the 1960s, Lynn rose to national prominence with songs like "Fist City" and "Coal Miner's Daughter," the latter song becoming a nickname for the Country Music Hall of Famer.

Country music singers and institutions sent their best wishes via social media.
