Lynn, who suffered a stroke in 2017 and broke her hip last year, gave her last public performance in 2017 at her Hurricane Mills, Tenn. ranch. It's yet to be announced if Lynn will take the stage during the tribute concert.

Last year, Lynn was named CMT's Artist of a Lifetime and celebrated during the CMT Artists of the Year ceremony, which featured tribute performances from Martina McBride and Dierks Bentley and Sheryl Crow.
