Tennesee – The “Coal Miners Daughter” Loretta Lyn has passed from this world at the age of 90
In a statement provided to The Associated Press, Lynn’s family said she died Tuesday at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee.
Lyn started her career in the 1960s after being a mother of four children. She never forgot her Kentucky roots and defined her songs around the area she grew up.
Her biggest hits came in the 1960s and ’70s, including “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” “You Ain’t Woman Enough,” “The Pill,” “Don’t Come Home a Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ on Your Mind),” “Rated X” and “You’re Looking at Country.”
She was known to be all gussyed up like Dolly Parton with full dresses adorned with rhinestones.
