Country Icon Loretta Lynn Falls and Breaks Hip in Tennessee Home
We're sending all our good thoughts out for country music legend Loretta Lynn. After canceling some of her tour dates last year following a stroke, Lynn made her first public appearance for friend Alan Jackson's induction to the Country Music Hall of Fame in October, 2017.
Earlier today, her sister and fellow country singer, Crystal Gayle, posted a moving post on Facebook asking fans to hold Lynn in their thoughts. "My birthday wish is for everyone to send love and prayers to my sister, Loretta Lynn, who fell and broke her hip last week," she wrote. "I was with Loretta yesterday. She is in good spirits and is doing as well as can be expected with this type of injury. Thank you for your love, prayers and continued support!"
Lynn's career in country music dates back to the 1950s, with hits including "Coal Miner's Daughter," "I'm a Honky Tonk Girl," "Don't Come Home A-Drinkin'," "The Pill," and many more country classics.
