Loretta Lynn is just about as classic as they come. Which is why her timeless songs, feisty attitude, and fashion sense have been celebrated for generations.
Even though she’s had countless hits, there is a special song that speaks to Lynn’s personal history. “Coal Miners Daughter” has become her signature song over time, so much so that her best-selling autobiography, later turned into a film about her childhood and rise to fame was titled just that.
In 1970 Lynn released the Coal Miner’s Daughter album, with the albums title track peaking at #1 that very same year. The album reached #4 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart, and was eventually certified gold by the RIAA in 1978.
“Coal Miners Daughter” tells Lynn’s family story, growing up in a small cabin atop a hill in Butcher Holler. With 7 children to support, there wasn’t a lot of money to go around but there was always plenty of love in the household. Those tough times made Lynn the artist she is today.
She has always marched to the beat of her own drum, which is what made it possible for her to succeed the way she did. She blazed the path for women in country music, and still receives praise from today’s newest singers.
In her website biography Lynn is quoted on what it takes to make it in a town like Nashville.
“To make it in this business, you either have to be first, great or different,” says the living legend. “And I was the first to ever go into Nashville, singin’ it like the women lived it.”
She was the first and certainly one of the best. Watch one of Lynn’s live performances of her signature song, “Coal Miner’s Daughter” below.
