Queen of country music and legend Loretta Lynn is facing another dangerous medical crisis. The 85-year-old "Coal Miner's Daughter" hitmaker suffered a nasty fall last week at her Tennessee home, resulting in a broken hip according to Radar Online. 2018 is not starting off too great for Loretta, who has had a pretty rough year. In May of 2017, the country icon suffered a stroke. Loretta is described as frail, but "doing well."

Struggles continue for Loretta Lynn

A statement released on Loretta's website reveals that Loretta is focussed on healing, and thanked her fans for all their well wishes and prayers during this tough time.

Country singer Crystal Gayle, who is best known for her hit song "Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue," and Loretta's younger sister, took to Instagram asking everyone to send Loretta "love and prayers."

Lynn in good spirits despite setback

“I was with Loretta yesterday,” Gale wrote on Instagram “She is in good spirits and is doing as well as can be expected with this type of injury.”

As previously reported, in May of 2017 Loretta Lynn was forced to cancel several shows after suffering a stroke. Lynn spent several months in a Nashville rehab facility following the stroke. Concern grew last summer that Lynn, who had difficulty speaking, would not be able to sing again. Battling hard to recover, now it seems that Loretta will once again face a struggle as she recuperates and recovers through the complicated recovery associated with a broken hip.

At her advanced age, it is going to be a tough road, but as all Loretta Lynn fans well know, if anyone can bounce back from these recent medical hardships, Loretta can. Throughout her life, she has proven time and time again that there is not much that can keep Loretta down. She began her successful career in country music when she was only 15 years old.

Growing up in the hills of Kentucky, Loretta met and married husband Doolittle Lynn when she was just a young girl of 13. Despite her father's disapproval, Loretta was granted permission to marry Doo at 13, quickly becoming a wife and mother. After hearing her sing to their babies he bought her a guitar and encouraged her to begin performing publicly.

Loretta Lynn is best known for country hits which include "Coal Miner's Daughter," and ''Don't Come Home A Drinkin," to name just a couple. She is well known for writing songs that reflect her family pride and background. Many fans wish Loretta Lynn a full and speedy recovery.
