Loretta Lynn is in a Nashville hospital after suffering a stroke at her home Thursday night.

Maria Malta, a publicist for Lynn, confirmed Friday that the 85-year-old singer and songwriter was admitted into a Nashville hospital after suffering the stroke at her home in Hurricane Mills, the Associated Press reported.

Lynn, who is still touring, was scheduled to perform Friday night in North Carolina but that show and several of her upcoming stops have been postponed.

In April, Lynn celebrated her 85th birthday by playing two sold-out shows at the Ryman Auditorium. She’s scheduled to return to the Ryman in August; those concerts will coincide with the release of her forthcoming album Wouldn’t It Be Great.

The singer’s career has been full of milestones in 1972 she became the first woman to win Country Music Entertainer of the Year. She’s won 3 Grammys and released 60 albums.
