Loretta Lynn fell and broke her hip, and her sister Crystal Gale is pleading with fans to pray for her sibling’s recovery.

“American music icon, Loretta Lynn is recovering from a fractured hip after a fall while at home. She is doing well and thanks all her fans for their thoughts and prayers,” the caption next to a picture shared Monday on Instagram of the 85-year-old country singer read. (RELATED: Loretta Lynn Cancels Concerts After Suffering Stroke Last Month)

A short time before, Lynn’s sister, Crystal Gale, asked fans to pray for the legendary country singer as her “birthday wish.”

“My birthday wish is for everyone to send love and prayers to my sister, Loretta Lynn, who fell and broke her hip last week,” Gale captioned her post on her social media account. “I was with Loretta yesterday. She is in good spirits and is doing as well as can be expected with this type of injury. Thank you for your love, prayers and continued support. Love you! Love you Sis!”

Lynn had to cancel her remaining tour dates last year and put the release of her album on hold following a stroke at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee in May.

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