Loretta Lynn offers important update after her recent health scare
Fans of the famous country singer were given reassurance that the 86-year-old is doing fine.
Loretta Lynn posted a video to Facebook offering comfort to her fans after being hospitalized. The nature of her illness was still not clarified. The video is found below.

Although the short clip was filmed prior to her hospitalization, Lynn implied that it stands as is. She said her album has "given [her] something to really pick [her] up."
"[The album] really pushes me ahead just a little bit, make me get well faster. I do. I think it's helped me a lot."
She highlighted the importance of support:
"My fans. That's what keeps you going. They're not really fans, they're friends, you know?"
"You get so close to the people that you've known all these years."
The artist received lots of love and support immediately after she publicized her encounter with health issues.
Fans, as well as industry peers, sent words of comfort and called for prayers.
Like Lynn, fans expressed disappointment when she was forced to miss the CMT awards earlier this month. Lynn was honored with the 2018 Artist of a Lifetime award that night.
Sissy Spacek received the honor on Lynn's behalf. Spacek had portrayed Lynn in the film "Coal Miner's Daughter."
It was Lynn who selected her for the role. Spacek described their connection:
Well Y'all, leave it to me to go and get sick on the very night all my friends are getting together to honor me at the CMT Award Show as their Artist of a Lifetime. I can’t believe that I'm not gonna be there tonight in person, but I am watching and I’m there in spirit!— Loretta Lynn (@LorettaLynn) October 18, 2018
"We had an instantaneous friendship. It was bizarre. She says, 'Sissy, we were twins in another life.' And I go, 'Okay, yeah, I get that.' She helped me so much with the role. She opened her eyes to me, she opened her heart to me. We're god-sisters."
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 and thought she just made the show! I can’t thank everyone enough for the kind words and this amazing award from CMT.— Loretta Lynn (@LorettaLynn) October 20, 2018
Back in 2012, Lynn shared the stage with her granddaughter for a performance.
11-year-old Emmy Rose took to the stage during one of Lynn's concerts. She sang "If I Die Young" by the Band Perry.
Lynn looked at her granddaughter with great pride as she sang her heart out to a cheering audience.

With Lynn's latest album released in September, Emmy Rose can take her time in reaching the spotlight. She knows that her grandmother is still giving fans brilliant country music.
