Loretta Lynn is recovering after she fell and broke her hip last week, according to an Instagram post from Lynn’s sister and fellow country entertainer Crystal Gayle.
“My birthday wish is for everyone to send love and prayers to my sister, Loretta Lynn, who fell and broke her hip last week. I was with Loretta yesterday. She is in good spirits and is doing as well as can be expected with this type of injury,” Gayle said.
In May, Lynn was hospitalized after suffering a stroke. The stroke caused Lynn to cancel a tour and postpone an album release. She was still recovering in August, when her sister Patsy appeared to thank the Country Music Hall of Fame during the preview for Loretta Lynn’s exhibit Blue Kentucky Girl.
By September, Lynn had made an appearance at the 2017 Tennessee Motorcycle and Music Revival at her ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee. In October, she was on stage to induct Alan Jackson into the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville.
