Loretta Lynn, also known as the Queen of Country Music, is recovering after suffering from a stroke at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee on May 4.

In an announcement on her website, the 85-year-old country music legend was under medical care and responsive, and was expected to make a full recovery. However, her upcoming scheduled shows have all been postponed until further notice. Her upcoming album, “Wouldn’t It Be Great,” is reportedly still set for an August 18 release, and is still accepting pre-orders. It is unclear if her current state of health will have an effect on the album’s release date.

Lynn is a major star in the Country music scene, having signed her first recording contract in 1960, and continually releasing albums every few years since. Her flourishing career over decades has led to her having an impressive net worth as well, which according to The Richest, is estimated at $60 million.

According to the website, Lynn’s earnings from her album sales only account for a small fortune of the fortune. She reportedly has earned an estimated $500,000 each on her certified gold albums: 1967’s “Don’t Come Home A-Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ On Your Mind),” 1968’s “Loretta Lynn’s Greatest Hits,” 1970’s “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” and 1993’s “Honky Tonk Angels (with Dolly Parton and Tammy Wynette).” She also reportedly earned an estimated $100,000 from her compilation album “All My Best,” and $65,600 from 2016’s “Full Circle.”

Her music is largely responsible for her wealth overall. According to Lynn’s personal website, over the course of her career, she has released 54 studio albums, 15 compilations, 88 singles, four b-sides, seven music videos, one soundtrack, and one tribute and cover album.

She has likely also made some of her earnings through books. According to Goodreads, she is either the author or co-author of several different titles, including “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” “Still Woman Enough: A Memoir,” “Honky Tonk Girl: My Life In Lyrics,” and “You're Cookin’ It Country: My Favorite Recipes and Memories.”

Of course, in comparison to other female country music singers, Lynn’s net worth is nowhere near as staggering. The Richest reports that Dolly Parton, who has also worked as an actress and is co-owner of her own theme park, is one of the wealthiest women in the business, with a staggering net worth of $500 million. Shania Twain is also reportedly worth a staggering amount of $350 million, and Faith Hill is worth $80 million.

Though it doesn’t factor into her net worth, Lynn is also known for her personal life as well. She famously married Oliver Vanetta Lynn (also known as Doolittle) in 1948, when she was just 15-years-old. The two remained married until his death in 1996, though she had opened up through the years about the marriage having turbulent times. She is also the mother of six children—four daughters, Betty Sue, Clara Marie, Peggy Jean and Patsy Eileen, and two sons, Jack Benny and Ernest Ray.

Lynn has thus far survived her two eldest children, Betty and Jack. Jack died in 1984 at the age of 34 from a drowning accident, and Betty Sue passed away in 2013 at age 64 from emphysema.
