Loretta Lynn was born on April 14, 1932, and has transformed the face of country music for all of eternity. She led the way for women in country, and even now – at the age of 84 – she still produces music that she performs in stunning concerts for all country enthusiasts to enjoy.
Lynn smashed the glass ceiling for female country music performers and thanks to that, over the span of her career, she has received a lot of awards from the Country Music Association, the Academy of Country Music, the Grammys, President Barack Obama and so forth… not to mention that she’s been inducted into a lot of Halls of Fame.
The “Coal Miner’s Daughter” launched her first single from Decca in 1962, a record lable she stuck with for several years. The song was her very first Top 10 success. After that, she got many hits, both as a solo musician and as a duo with Conway Twitty. Lynn additionally started voicing her thoughts through her music at a time when women were largely silenced in the country music industry.
As mentioned above, the lovely Lynn continues to produce music. Earlier this year, she released Full Circle, which was produced by Patsy Lynn Russell and John Carter Cash. On top of that, she continues to perform at the Grand Ole Opry, where she has been a member for more than 50 years!
