(RNN) - Country music star Loretta Lynn has had a stroke, according to reports and her Facebook page.

Her Facebook page says she was admitted into a hospital in Nashville, TN, Thursday night after suffering a stroke at her home in Hurricane Mills, TN. 

She is under medical care, responsive and expected to make a full recovery, her page says.  

Lynn, 85, has been advised by doctors to stay off the road while she recuperates. 

The Country Music Hall of famer rose to the top of country music after beginning with I'm a Honky Tonk Girl (1960). 

In her autobiography, Coal Miner's Daughter, Lynn said, "I'm not a big fan of women's liberation, but maybe it will help some women stand up for the respect they're due," about her song Fist City (1968).

Her top songs include Coal Miner's Daughter (1970), Lead Me On with Conway Twitty (1971) and Don't Come Home a Drinkin' (With Lovin' on Your Mind) (1967).
