Legendary country artist Loretta Lynn remains hospitalized in Nashville according to a statement made by her publicist to the Associated Press.
A statement posted to Lynn's website states that the singer suffered a stroke at her Nashville area home late Thursday (May 4) and was hospitalized. The 85-year old was receiving medical care and is expected to make a full recovery.
Maria Malta, Lynn's publicist, responded Saturday to the Associated Press's inquiry about Lynn's condition by saying that there was nothing to add about the singer's condition beyond the statement that was issued Friday.
Lynn's sister, fellow country singer and new Grand Ole Opry member Crystal Gayle, issued a statement on Twitter following the stroke saying, Gayle also told the Associated Press that her sister is a strong woman. "I know she'll come out of this," Gayle added.
Our prayers continue to be with Loretta Lynn.
