Coal Miner’s Daughter: See Loretta Lynn Pictures Through the Years

Loretta Lynn was born April 14, 1932 and has changed the face of country music forever. She paved the way for females in country, and even now, at the age of 84, still continues to make music and perform shows for country fans.

Lynn broke ground for female country music artists and because of that, through the course of her career, she’s been given numerous honors from the Country Music Association, the Academy of Country Music, the Grammys President Barack Obama … she’s also been inducted into numerous Hall of Fames.

The “Coal Miner’s Daughter” released her very first single off Decca in 1962, a label she would stay with for many years. The single was her first Top 10 hit. From there she had numerous hits both as a solo artist and then alongside Conway Twitty. Lynn also began voicing her opinions through her music, which was unheard of for women in country at the time.

Lynn is still releasing music. In early 2016 she released Full Circle, which was produced by Patsy Lynn Russell and John Carter Cash. She also continues to perform at the Grand Ole Opry and has been a member for over 50 years!
