The grande dame of country music will never take the stage again. Loretta Lynn captivated audiences at her performances into old age, now that she has passed away. She has a career spanning decades, dozens of successful albums and many awards behind her.
American country music singer Loretta Lynn has died. The 90-year-old died “peacefully in her sleep” on Tuesday at her ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee, her family said. Born on April 14, 1932, in Butcher Hollow, Kentucky, Lynn had more than 80 hits on the country charts between 1960 and 1980. One of them, “Coal Miner’s Daughter”, tells the story of her life as one of eight children from poor backgrounds. In the film of the same name about the life of Lynn, Sissy Spacek played the singer. Spacek won an Oscar for her performance.
Loretta, 15, married artist Oliver Vanetta Lynn and had four children before she was 20. She then became a mother of twins and their marriage lasted until her husband’s death in 1996.
Lynn, who openly sang about sexuality, infidelity and pregnancy in her songs, much to the chagrin of some radio stations, was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1988. Among her many awards was the Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor, bestowed on her by President Barack Obama in 2013. In 2016, she supported Donald Trump in the election campaign.
A month before her 89th birthday, Lynn had released an album of re-recordings of old and new songs, Still Woman Enough. Lynn released dozens of successful albums during her decades-long career. They include hits that have long become classics, such as “Honky Tonk Girl” or “Don’t Come Home a Drinkin’”.
