“Her left side was kind of paralyzed,” Webb explained, “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, who lives near the Butcher Hollow, Kentucky, home where he and Loretta grew up before the family moved, is the curator of the “cabin on a hill in Butcher Holler” near Paintsville, Kentucky, and often conducts tours for visitors to the historic home.
The 85-year-old Lynn was in the middle of a tour when she suffered the stroke. All of her upcoming shows have been postponed indefinitely, including two which were scheduled for Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium August 24th and 25th. But, at the same time, a date for the singing legend’s Motorcycle and Music Revival, has been set, with the event taking place September 28th through October 1st at Hurricane Mills. Lynn’s latest LP, Wouldn’t It Be Great, will be released August 18th, and follows the Grammy-nominated Full Circle.
