Loretta Lynn released a statement to fans about her health on Wednesday. The legendary singer says she is now at home recovering.
Lynn took to her Facebook page to update her fans after a string of canceled tour dates and a stroke in May. “Thank you so much for all of your prayers, love and support,” she 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.”
This is great news after a long silence from Lynn’s camp. To focus on her health, the 85-year-old is pushing her album back. She wants it to be the best it can be.
“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!”
Lynn has also canceled the remainder of her 2017 tour dates. We’ll provide more information on her forthcoming record as it becomes available.
We’re sending all our love to the legendary singer as she fully recovers. Leave your well wishes for her in the comments section below.
