The Tragic Death of Loretta Lynn
American singer-songwriter Loretta Lynn has died on October 4, 2022, at the age of 90, according to her family, who confirmed the news in a statement to the Associated Press. Our condolences go out to Lynn's loved ones.
Born in 1935, she hailed from the coal-mining region of Kentucky and had seven siblings. Lynn married at 13 to Oliver "Doolittle" Lynn, became a mom at 14, and by the time she turned 18, Lynn was a mother to four children.
In 1960, Lynn was signed by a label in Vancouver, Canada called Zero Records. She and her husband wound up mailing out her records to radio stations around the country and this plan worked because, by the end of that same year, Lynn played on the Grand Ole Opry.
Lynn became a staple of country music and was well recognized in the community, being listed among the honors recipients at the Academy of Country Music Awards in June 2021. Lynn was also an author to two autobiographies, "Coal Miner's Daughter," followed by "Me and Patsy Kickin' Up Dust: My Friendship With Patsy Cline."
