Loretta Lynn is one of country’s greatest ambassadors. She has been putting out groundbreaking music for decades and her influence has been felt far and wide. No other female country singer has won as many awards as she has. She has sold 45 million records worldwide with ten number one albums and sixteen number one singles on the country charts. She also was the first female country single to earn a spot on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
While she is best known for being a “Coalminer’s Daughter” my favorite song of hers is “Your Ain’t Woman Enough (To Take my Man)”
She gained pop notoriety when she collaborated with The White Stripes’ Jack White on the album “Van Lear Rose”
She also recently collaborated with Willie Nelson
We’re praying for you, Loretta. We hope you made a swift recovery!
