Loretta Lynn

Loretta Lynn (born April 14, 1935 in Butcher Hollow,Van Lear, Kentucky) is an American country singer who was the leading country female vocalist during much of the 1960’s and 1970’s. In the 1970’s she became one of the most famous women in all of America and frequently made "most admired women" polls alongside first ladies and world leaders.

According to Songfacts, Loretta Lynn’s superstar Country career started in 1960 when she recorded " I’m a Honky Tonk Girl " as her debut single. The song was a minor hit, climbing to #14 on Billboard’s C&W Chart. By the late 1960s she had begun picking up various Female Vocalist of the Year trophies and in 1972 the singer became the first woman in history to win the Country Music Association’s Entertainer of the Year trophy. Lynn dominated the Country charts throughout the rest of the decade and has continued to record hit records through the ensuing years. Her 50th anniversary year began with the award of a Grammy Lifetime Achievement on January 31, 2010.

Lynn has released over 70 albums. She is the sister of famous country singer Crystal Gayle (born in Paintsville, Kentucky) and Peggy Sue, and is a cousin of Patty Loveless. Her father was a coal miner in Van Lear. Her biography was made into the 1980 film, Coal Miner’s Daughter.
