The 85-year-old country singer is reportedly “doing great” while she recovers at a rehabilitation center after suffering the stroke. No further explanation was provided on the singer’s website about the cancellations.

“Loretta, who just celebrated her 85th birthday, has been advised by her doctors to stay off the road while she is recuperating,” a message on the her website  read. “Regrettably, upcoming scheduled shows will be postponed.”

Her ranch in Tennessee recently announced that she has added a motorcycle and music revival in September where she’s slated to perform, according to Rolling Stone magazine.

The country singer is probably best known for her 1970 hit song “Coal Miner’s Daughter.”

Her next album titled “Wouldn’t It Be Great” is still expected to be released August 18.
