Legendary country singer Loretta Lynn has moved to a rehabilitation facility and is “doing great” after suffering a stroke more than a week ago, according to a statement Monday night.

“Loretta wants to thank everybody for their prayers, love, and support,” a statement on the 85-year-old singer’s website read.”Loretta has been moved from the hospital facility in to rehabilitation and we’re happy to report she is doing great.” (RELATED: Loretta Lynn Forced To Cancel Concert After Taking A Nasty Spill)

“Loretta, who just celebrated her 85th birthday, has been advised by her doctors to stay off the road while she is recuperating,” it added. “Regrettably, upcoming scheduled shows will be postponed.” (RELATED: This Huge Country Star Just Revealed The Republican She’s Supporting For President)

Last week, Lynn’s younger sister Crystal Gayle asked fans to keep praying for her sister, who suffered a stroke on May 4 in the singer’s home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee.

“Thank you for all your prayers and well wishes for Loretta. Keep them coming. We are lucky in this day and age to have wonderful doctors and nurses taking care of her. Plus they have to put up with our dramatic and crazy family and friends,” Gayle tweeted.

 

The country singer is probably best known for her 1970 hit song “Coal Miner’s Daughter.”

Her next album titled “Wouldn’t It Be Great” is expected to be released in August.
