Loretta Lynn has been moved into rehabilitation after suffering from a stroke earlier this month. 

According to a post on the 85-year-old country singer and songwriter's website, Lynn is now "doing great."

"Loretta wants to thank everybody for their prayers love and support. Loretta has been moved from hospital facility in to rehabilitation and we're happy to report she is doing great," the message reads. 

Lynn suffered from a stroke on May 4 at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee. She was then admitted into a Nashville hospital with the expectation she would make a full recovery. 

A message at the time said Lynn had been advised by doctors to stay off the road while she recuperates and upcoming scheduled shows will be postponed.
