Loretta Lynn


Loretta Lynn is a classic country singer. During the '60s and '70s, she ruled the charts, racking up more than 70 hits as a solo artist and a duet partner. Born in poverty in Butcher Hollow, Kentucky, Loretta Lynn had 4 children by the age of 20 and then became the most popular female singer in country music history. Loretta's 1970 hit record 'Coal Miner's Daughter' led to the 1976 release of her autobiography by the same name, which topped The New York Times' bestselling list, and was followed by the Academy Award - winning movie 'Coal Miner's Daughter' (1980). Her 2004 "comeback" release, 'Van Lear Rose,' was produced by Jack White of the White Stripes.
