Sunday Morning Country Classic Spotlight to feature Loretta Lynn


Loretta Lynn’s life story is amazing, a woman born in Butcher Holler, Kentucky on April 14, 1935; now 76 years old. Married at age thirteen and a mother at fourteen, who rose to become the most popular singer in country music.

Loretta Webb was the second of eight children. She met Mooney Lynn at a pie social. A month after they had first met, still three months before her fourteenth birthday she married Mooney. A year later they moved to Washington State, where Mooney heard job opportunities were better.

In 1960 she signed a record contract with Zero Records in near by Vancouver Canada.  She won the CMA’s Female vocalist of the Year award in 1967, 1972 and 1973. In 1970 Lynn’s recording of her signature song “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” became one of her biggest hits.

She recorded duets with Conway Twitty that went on to become huge hits. “After The Fire is Gone,” “Lead Me On,” “Louisiana Woman” and “Mississippi Man.” In 1976 Lynn’s autobiography titled, “Coal Miner’s Daughter” became a best seller and was made into a hit movie starring Sissy Spacek. In 1988 Loretta was elected to the country music Hall of Fame.

Join me Sunday morning November 18th when I will play Loretta Lynn’s music and highlight her amazing life; 11 a.m. on the Country Classic Spotlight, it’s a segment of the 98 Country Classic Show 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. 98.1 98 Country.
