Loretta Lynn's Ranch - Campground, Tours, Concerts & Events / Facebook
After over 60 years in the country music industry, the legendary Loretta Lynn‘s career has been immortalized in the form of a gorgeous mural.
Not only has she been releasing music for the last 60 years, she’s been topping the charts the whole time as well. At 88 years old, Lynn released her latest album Still Woman Enough, and it is currently in the Top Ten of the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. This marks her 42nd Top Ten entry on the chart, trailing only behind Dolly Parton’s 46 and Willie Nelson’s 53.
To celebrate that album’s success, as well as her 89th birthday on April 14th, Lynn’s family commissioned a mural to be painted at her ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee by Nashville artist Stephen Sloan and Austin artist Brittany Johnson.
“This has been one of the most memorable experiences I have had painting a wall; and the amazing feedback from fans and Loretta’s family alike has been awesome,” Sloan told WSMV.
Johnson said, “Painting Loretta Lynn was my favorite set of portraits to date and it was a huge honor to paint such a legend and incredible woman and artist.”
Johnson and Sloan painted four images of Lynn from throughout her career, including her latest album cover.
According to her ranch’s official Facebook page, Lynn loved the mural and said, “I’m so proud of the ranch. My husband Doo poured his life into it and Anthony is doing such a great job for me with it. I have always loved to paint myself, something a lot of people may not know, but I couldn’t imagine painting a huge wall like that. They did such a great job for us and our guests. I’m sure proud of it.”
