Born Loretta Webb in Butcher Holler in Kentucky in 1932, Loretta is now 86. She married 21-year-old Oliver Lynn when she was just 15 and they had six children.

For six decades or more, Loretta has been one of the best-known female singers in country music. Her story was relayed in the 1980 Oscar-nominated movie Coalminer’s Daughter, where the lead role was superbly played by Sissy Spacek.
