7. Loretta Lynn's Son Drowns

This legendary coal miner's daughter is no stranger to tough situations and has surely penned tunes about many she's been through, but one tragic incident in mid-July 1984 was likely too painful to write about. 

Loretta Lynn's 34-year-old son, Jack Benny Lynn was riding his horse across their Hurricane Mills, Tennessee property when sometime in the evening, the pair attempted to cross the Duck River that cuts through the family's property. 

Unfortunately, he never made it back. The sheriff's office discovered the horse standing under a river bluff and Jack's body nearby. 

Watch Loretta Lynn and her son Ernest Ray sing a heartfelt tune, "Message From Jesus", in the video below.
