Despite reports from someone claiming to be a relative of Loretta Lynn's, the legendary singer is not ill. Someone named Michael Lynn turned to social media on Saturday (October 20th) to post that Loretta was “back in the hospital with some serious issues,” but a spokesperson for her record label says that is untrue. The spokesperson did say that Loretta had “a brief hospital visit” but was “enjoying a weekend of resting up at home.” The rep added, “Please note, Michael Lynn is not a known relative and does not speak on behalf of Loretta Lynn or her family.”

Last week, Loretta bowed out of the CMT Artists of the Year live TV special where she was honored as the Artist of a Lifetime. The “coal miner's daughter” issued a statement through her Sony Music publicist which read: “I’ve watched the CMT show more than once now and am so proud of the amazing job all the girls did! I especially appreciated my sweet friend, Sissy (Spacek), and thought she just made the show! I can’t thank everyone enough for the kind words and this amazing award from CMT. I was so disappointed to have missed it because I was sick. After a brief hospital visit, I’m feeling better now and enjoying a weekend of resting up at home . . . Love y’all, Loretta.”
