Legendary country singer Loretta Lynn had a tough 2017 after she suffered a stroke that left her "kind of paralyzed" in May.
"American country music legend Loretta Lynn was admitted into a hospital in Nashville Thursday night after she suffered a stroke at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee," read the statement issued by her publicist.
Lynn, who was still touring at the time, was advised by doctors to postpone her shows so she could focus on her recovery. Her prognosis was good, and she was expected to make a full recovery, but she still spent three months in the hospital and at a rehabilitation center.
Upon her release, the singer, known for her string of hits like "Coal Miner's Daughter," "You Ain't Woman Enough," and "One's on the Way," shared an update on her condition via Facebook.
"Thank you so much for all of your prayers, love, and support," Lynn wrote. "I'm happy to say that I'm at home with my family and getting better by the day. My main focus now is making a full recovery so that I can get back to putting all of me into what I love, sharing my music with all of you. I’m just letting everybody know that Willie [Nelson] ain’t dead yet and neither am I, and I can’t wait to see all of you on the road!"
Lynn pushed her album, "Wouldn't It Be Great," release date to 2018 so she could be well enough to promote it, but unfortunately, the new year is off to a rough start for her.
