Loretta Lynn gave her family and fans quite a scare earlier this month. On May 4, the country legend suffered a stroke at her Hurricane Mills home in Tennessee. Her team broke the news the following day, saying she was “expected to make a full recovery.”
Since then, Lynn’s family has made sure to keep her fans updated on her condition. Five days after her stroke, Lynn’s assistant, daughter, and granddaughter told a Nashville news station “she is doing better each day and is sitting up in her recliner, laughing and talking.”
Lynn’s team provided an additional update on May 15. They revealed that Lynn had been moved out of the hospital and is now in rehabilitation. “We’re happy to report she is doing great!” they wrote.
After her stroke, Lynn’s doctors advised her to hold off on performing so she could make a full recovery. As a result, she had to postpone all of her upcoming shows until further notice.
Now one of those shows has been rescheduled. News OK announced on Wednesday (May 24) that her show originally scheduled for June 23 at The Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa has a new date.
However, Lynn’s fans will have to wait a little longer to see her than they expected. To give Lynn plenty of time to recover, the show has been rescheduled to take place a year from now, on May 17, 2018.
The venue states that all previously purchased tickets will be honored on the new show date. Those who can’t attend the new date will be able to obtain a refund if they desire.
We know how important it is for Lynn to take time to recover, so we’re glad she’s doing just that. We’re sending continued prayers and love her way.
