Lynn, 85, was admitted to a Nashville hospital on Thursday
where she is "under medical care and is responsive and expected
to make a full recovery," a statement on LorettaLynn.com said.
The singer's upcoming shows have been postponed on advice of her
doctors while she recovers, the statement added.
Lynn was scheduled to perform at the Carolina Theatre in Durham,
North Carolina on Friday, and had performances lined up across
the United States through November.
Born in Kentucky, Lynn carved a career in the country music
scene with her down-home twangy voice, singing hits such as
1960's "I'm a Honky Tonk Girl" and "Coal Miner's Daughter,"
released in 1970.
