The Loretta Lynn concert scheduled for tonight at the Carolina Theatre of Durham has been postponed.

A press release issued by the theatre cited “unforeseen circumstances.”

A posting on country music legend Lynn's website Friday evening says she has been hospitalized after having a stroke.

The posting says Lynn was admitted into a Nashville hospital on Thursday night after suffering the stroke at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee.

Her website says she is currently under medical care and is responsive and expected to make a full recovery.

Lynn, who just celebrated her 85th birthday, has been advised by her doctors to stay off the road while she is recuperating.

Tickets for tonight’s show will be honored when a new date is set, so ticketholders wishing to attend that show should just hold on to their tickets.

If a refund is desired, ticketholders should go to the original point of purchase or call Carolina Theatre at 919-560-3030.
