Loretta Lynn (née Webb; born April 14, 1932) is a chart-topping, multiple-gold-album-selling American country music singer-songwriter whose work has spanned more than 50 years. She has received numerous awards and other accolades for her groundbreaking role in country music and her documentation of, and contributions to, American culture. She has also authored at least six books, most of them autobiographies. Lynn was born to coal miner Melvin "Ted" Webb and wife Clara, née Ramey, in Butcher Hollow, near Paintsville, Kentucky, USA, the second of eight children.

In January 1948, shortly before she turned 16, Loretta married Oliver Vanetta Lynn, Jr. (1926–1996) and soon became pregnant. She and her husband moved to Washington state. Their marriage was tumultuous; he had affairs, but she stayed with him. Their life together helped inspire the music she wrote. In 1953, on their sixth anniversary, when Loretta was 21, Oliver bought her a 17-dollar Harmony guitar. She taught herself to play. When she was 24, on their wedding anniversary, Oliver encouraged her to become a singer. She worked to improve her guitar playing and started singing at the Delta Grange Hall in Washington state with the Pen Brothers' band, The Westerners. Lynn eventually cut her first record, "Honky Tonk Girl", in February 1960. She became a part of the country music scene in Nashville in the 1960s, and in 1967 charted her first of 16 number-one hits (out of 70 charted songs as a solo artist and a duet partner) that include "Don't Come Home A' Drinkin' (With Lovin' on Your Mind)", "You Ain't Woman Enough", "Fist City", and "Coal Miner's Daughter". Lynn focused on blue-collar women's issues with themes about philandering husbands and persistent mistresses, and pushed boundaries in the conservative genre of country music by singing about birth control ("The Pill"), repeated childbirth ("One's on the Way"), double standards for men and women ("Rated "X""), and being widowed by the draft during the Vietnam War ("Dear Uncle Sam"). Country music radio stations often refused to play her music, banning nine of her songs, but Lynn pushed on to become "The First Lady of Country Music". In 1980, her best-selling 1976 autobiography Coal Miner's Daughter was made into an Academy Award-winning film, Coal Miner's Daughter, starring Sissy Spacek and Tommy Lee Jones. Her most recent album, Van Lear Rose, released in 2004, was produced by fellow musician Jack White; it topped the country album charts. Lynn and White were nominated for five Grammys and won two. They earned critical success for their work Lynn has been performing for 53 years. She has received numerous awards in country and American music; including being inducted into the Country Music Hall Of Fame in 1988, and the Song Writers Hall Of Fame in 2008. She was honored in 2010 at the Country Music Awards for her stellar career. Her most recent honor is the 2013 Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama (awarded also to Bill Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, and Bob Dylan). Lynn has been a member of The Grand Ole Opry for 51 years, since joining on September 25, 1962. Her first appearance on the Grand Ole Opry was on October 15, 1960. In a press conference she said, "I've played in a million places, but the Grand Ole Opry is different." Lynn has recorded 70 albums, this includes 54 studio albums, 15 compilation albums, and 1 tribute album; and has sold over 48 million albums worldwide in her career.
