Loretta Lynn made her return to the concert stage this past weekend after suffering a stroke in May.

The brief appearance happened during a concert at the Tennessee Motorcycles and Music Revival at Loretta’s ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee. Fan Rachel Deardorff posted this clip of Loretta singing her classic hit, “You Ain’t Woman Enough (To Take My Man),” which had not been planned.

Rachel says, “[Loretta] had to have a little help coming onto the stage, and they had a chair for her. She wasn’t going to sing, but within two minutes of being out there she did. Her daughters really help her along to keep up with a few lyrics, but overall it was amazing. She was singing, telling jokes, etc.”

Rachel adds, “She looked beautiful.”

Another fan chimed in, “Way to go, Loretta. You still rock, honey.”

Though Loretta is making great progress in her recovery, she’s not returning to the concert trail just yet. All of her concert dates have been postponed for the time being, and her new album, “Wouldn’t It Be Great,” has been postponed for release until 2018.
