“She is currently under medical care and is responsive and expected to make a full recovery,” a message on Lynn’s website 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.” (RELATED: This Huge Country Star Just Revealed The Republican She’s Supporting For President)

The country singer is probably best known for her 1970 hit song “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” a song about her own life experience growing up in Kentucky as a coal miner’s daughter.

Last year, Lynn was forced to cancel several shows after she fell and bruised her ribs.

Her next album is expected out in August.
