Loretta Lynn has moved to a rehabilitation facility to continue recovering from a stroke she had more than a week ago at her home in Tennessee.

A statement on the singer’s website announced the move and said she is “doing great.” It also thanked fans for their “prayers, love, and support.”

Lynn still will be cancelling upcoming shows on the advice of her doctors, the site stated. The singer recently turned 85.

With plans to release a new studio album Aug. 18 titled “Woudn’t It Be Great,” Lynn had an active touring schedule until the stroke and has postponed shows through June 23 so far.

Lynn's country music career has spanned five decades, and her memoir was made into an Oscar-winning movie, “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” in 1980. Her songs speak of a humble upbringing in Appalachia and her life as a young wife and mother there.

Lynn, who won two Grammy Awards in 2005 for her album “Van Lear Rose,” will be the subject of a Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum exhibit in August.

“She’s a strong woman and I know she’ll come out of this,” Lynn’s sister Crystal Gale told The Associated Press after the stroke. “Our family appreciates your prayers, love and support. We pray for a speedy recovery.”

Lynn is expected to make a full recovery, the AP reported.
