Loretta Lynn, the Kentucky coal miner's daughter whose frank songs about life and love as a woman in Appalachia pulled her out of poverty and made her a pillar of country music, has died. She was 90.

In a statement provided to The Associated Press, Lynn's family said she died Tuesday at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee.

Lynn already had four children before launching her career in the early 1960s, and her songs reflected her pride in her rural Kentucky background.

I'm not a real big country music fan but Loretta Lynn is a true legend that opened the way for women in country music. My condolences to her family and friends.

If you listened to country music on the radio in the 60s and 70s, you heard her, for sure.  You just didn't hear her name I guess.

Growing up in the 60s in the south, I came to hate country music so much that my first choice in music to buy was Black Sabbath :w00t:

I was born in 76. Never really listed to country till the 90’s when I moved upstate and there was no escaping it. Then it grew on me. Some of it anyway.

Sissy Speck did a superb job playing Loretta Lynn in Coal Minors Daughter alongside Tommy Lee Jones, if you have not seen it I highly recommend it.
