Loretta Lynn is out of the hospital following her May 4 stroke. According to an update on Lynn’s official website, the country icon has been moved to a rehabilitation facility.

“Loretta wants to thank everybody for their prayers, love and support,” the posted statement reads. “We’re happy to report she is doing great!”

Lynn’s sister, singer Crystal Gayle, shared on May 10 that Lynn “[had] wonderful doctors and nurses taking great care of her” and was doing well. Around the same time, Lynn’s daughter, granddaughter and assistant all said the artist was getting better each day; they noted, specifically, that Lynn was sitting up in her recliner, talking and laughing.

Lynn’s stroke occurred at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tenn.; following the stroke, the legendary singer-songwriter was admitted to a Nashville hospital. She is expected to make a full recovery.

Doctors have advised Lynn to stay off the road while recuperating, so all of her upcoming shows have been postponed. Fans can check Lynn’s official website for updates on when shows will be rescheduled.

Lynn celebrated her 85th birthday on April 14. On Aug. 18, she will release a brand-new album, Wouldn’t It Be Great; the following week, on Aug. 25, an exhibit about Lynn will open at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
