Loretta Lynn: Eight Decades of Honest, Heartfelt Music

From "I'm a Honky Tonk Girl" to "I Fall to Pieces," We Honor This Country Legend

Is there anyone in the English-speaking universe who doesn’t know by now that singer-songwriter Loretta Lynn was born “in a cabin on a hill in Butcher Holler” and that her father supported his large family as coal miner and hillside farmer?

The date that Loretta Webb — the second of eight children — arrived in that Kentucky cabin was April 14, 1932. When her father’s mining job enabled him to buy the family a radio, she became obsessed with listening to music, particularly that being made by Grand Ole Opry stars.
