Loretta Lynn’s younger brother, Herman Webb, has given an update on how the country icon is recovering following the stroke she had in May. Webb tells Closer Weekly that Loretta can talk now, and told him that she thinks she’s going to be okay. Herman says, “Her left side was kind of paralyzed, but [she can get around by] herself now, she just has to use a walker. She’s doing really good — that’s the main thing!” Webb adds that Lynn is determined to sing again and making music has been very good therapy for her.
- This update comes after Loretta recently canceled the majority of her July tour dates to recover from the stroke. Loretta’s website still shows an appearance at her ranch in Hurricane Mill, Tennessee, on July 1, with a two-night stand at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium in August listed as her next event after that.
