I feel as though every day we are losing another sports or music legend these days.
The latest to go is legendary singer Loretta Lynn.
She was 90 years old.
Coal Miner’s Daughter
Loretta’s family announced her death on Tuesday.
They stated, “Our precious mom, Loretta Lynn, passed away peacefully this morning, October 4th, in her sleep at home in her beloved ranch in Hurricane Mills.”
The family has asked for privacy while they griever her loss.
This woman’s career spanned six decades.
If there is a music award, it is more than likely on her mantel.
That would include being inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1988.
For her time, she was a trailblazer, setting the stage for many female acts for many years to come.
She wrote what she felt… she wrote the truth.
On her songs, Lynn stated, “I could see that other women was goin’ through the same thing, ’cause I worked the clubs.
“I wasn’t the only one that was livin’ that life and I’m not the only one that’s gonna be livin’ today what I’m writin.'”
Cheating husbands, sex, love… she covered it all with songs such as “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.”
Rest in peace, Loretta… we will definitely miss you.
