A Look at Loretta Lynn, Country Music Legend

Loretta Lynn

Bold and brilliant, Loretta Lynn is one of country music’s greatest living icons.

As portrayed in her arguably best known song, as well as the Oscar winning film which shares its title, Loretta was born the daughter of a coal miner in Butcher Hollow, Kentucky. She began her singing career in earnest in the 50s, and began her ascent to becoming Nashville royalty in the late-60s, eventually scoring 16 country music number ones; including, “Don’t Come Home A’ Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ on Your Mind),” “You Ain’t Woman Enough,” “Fist City,” and of course “Coal Miner’s Daughter.”

At 81, Loretta has an online presence comparable to that of performers a quarter of her age. A free PeekYou search for her will take you to her website, social networking pages, and numerous articles. Check it out here.
