Loretta Lynn is resting comfortably after falling and breaking her hip, her sister, Crystal Gayle, has revealed.
In a tweet posted Monday morning (Jan. 8), a day ahead of Gayle’s birthday, the “Don’t Make My Brown Eyes Blue” singer asked for “love and prayers” as Loretta recovers. “My birthday wish is for everyone to send love and prayers to my sister, Loretta Lynn, who fell and broke her hip last week,” she shared. While Gayle didn’t reveal any specific details regarding the 85-year-old’s fall, she said that Lynn is “in good spirits and is doing as well as can be expected with this type of injury.”
Lynn has spent much of the past year out of the spotlight after suffering from a stroke in May of 2017. During her recovery, she cancelled her tour and the release of her new album, Wouldn’t It Be Great, to concentrate on her rehabilitation. “I am getting stronger every day and can’t wait to get back out there with all of you. I’m just letting everybody know that Willie ain’t dead yet and neither am I, and I can’t wait to see all of you on the road,” she told fans at the time.
She concluded her year with a surprise appearance at Alan Jackson’s Country Music Hall of Fame induction in October. The moment marked her second public appearance after the stroke. She previously performed on her ranch as part of the Tennessee Motorcycle and Music Revival.

1) Talk to God. Don’t bemoan the collapse of an investment; ask God to help you. Don’t pace the floor of the hospital waiting room; pray for a successful surgery. ‘Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him’ (1 Peter 5:7).
2) Slow down. ‘Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him’ (Psalm 37:7). Jesus’ first miracle took place at a wedding. They had run out of wine, which was a social disaster in those days. Mary could’ve blamed the host for poor planning, or the guests for overdrinking, but instead she took the shortage to Jesus and He solved her problem. You can do the same. Assess the problem, and then take it to the Lord in prayer.
3) Don’t let your anxieties get the best of you. When a mosquito lands on you, you don’t say, ‘I’ll take care of it in a minute.’ No, you kill it before it can bite you. Be equally decisive with your worries. The moment they surface, deal with them. Before you rush to diagnose that mole as a cancer, have it examined. Instead of assuming you’ll never get out of debt, consult a financial expert. Be a doer, not a stewer.
Horace Bushnell said, ‘Anxiety is a word of unbelief or unreasoning dread. We have no right to allow it. Full faith in God puts it to rest.’ The crosses we bear over anxiety concerning the future aren’t crosses that come from God. So give your anxiety to God, and leave it with Him!
