Biography

Born a coal miner's daughter
in Butcher Hollow, Kentucky on April 14, 1932, Loretta Lynn (born Webb) was married at the
age of 15, became a mother a year later. She was raising four children when she
started performing at age 24 in local clubs. Full of sassy, honkytonk glamour,
she was a perfect fit for Nashville where the blue collar anthems about her
tough upbringing and her husband's philandering quickly became popular and led
to her first Number 1 single on the Country Charts with “Don't Come Home a
Drinkin' (With Lovin' on Your Mind)”
. She scored more than 60 country hits
including the classics “Rated X”, “Coal Miner's Daughter”, and “Fist
City”
and sold over 30 million records before her biography was turned into
the Academy Award-winning film Coal Miner's Daughter starring Sissy
Spacek and Tommy Lee Jones in 1980. A member of the Grand Ole Opry for more
than 50 years, she teamed up with Tammy Wynette and Dolly Parton for the top 10
album Honky Tonk Angels in 1993 before a high-profile comeback saw her
collaborate with Jack White and produce some of her finest work on the Grammy
Award-winning album Van Lear Rose in 2004. Her popularity resurgence in
the early 2000s led to Sony Music releasing Coal Miner's Daughter: A Tribute
to Loretta Lynn
in 2010 featuring country artists such as Reba McEntire,
Faith Hill and Carrie Underwood performing some of Lynn's hits. In 2015 she
released Full Circle which featured collaborations with Willie Nelson
and Elvis Costello and gave Lynn her 40th top 10 album. She released a
Christmas album in 2016 and began work on her Wouldn't It Be Great, her
41st album, which was released in 2018.
2021’s Still Woman Enough mixed
new songs with new renditions of some of her previous tracks and was produced
by her daughter, Patsy Lynn Russell.
