May 2017 was a month of shocking events for Loretta Lynn followers as the ‘The Pill’ singer reportedly suffered a stroke. This sad news about Loretta Lynn’s medical condition led to the songstress’ cancellation of tour dates and postponing of her new album release to 2018. Nonetheless, this medical condition did not stop Lynn from giving once in a while, heartfelt messages and even health updates to her longing fans that were not short of sending their thoughts and prayers as time passes by. Loretta Lynn effectively used the power of social media to make sure that her legion of fans felt that she does not forget about them every single day as she tries to recover away from tours and working hard on music.
Hurricane Mills, Loretta Lynn
“Thank you so much for all of your prayers, love, and support. 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.
My new album, Wouldn’t It Be Great, was originally scheduled to come in August this year. I now want to wait to release it next year because this record is so special for me. It deserves me at my best and I can’t wait to share it. I want to thank everyone for hanging in there with me. I am getting stronger every day and can’t wait to get back out there with all of you. I’m just letting everybody know that Willie ain’t dead yet and neither am I, and I can’t wait to see all of you on the road!”
Those were the exact words of Loretta Lynn on her official Facebook account last July, months after her stroke incident. Needless to say, Loretta Lynn indeed kept her promise as she performed for the very first time in public after hospitalization at her ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee.
Clearly, Lynn is still on the road to recovery as she sat singing her big hits such as ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter’ while being surrounded by her loving family. Still, it’s crystal clear that this country singer has always been the Queen of Country Music and not even a stroke could prevent her from proving that.
