It’s Loretta Lynn’s Birthday!

The First Lady of Country Music turns 82 today!

The Coal Miner’s Daughter from Butcher Hollow, Kentucky, has made country music history for the past 50 years.

And we are so glad she has!

She taught herself to play guitar at 21 when her husband, Mooney, bought her a guitar for her birthday and said she should be come a singer. Their lives are chronicled in the autobiographical song made into a hit movie ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter’ starring Sissy Spacek. I guess you can say it’s her guitar’s birthday, too!

She has been the recipient of the Grammys, ACMs, a Kennedy Center Honor and was the first female country star to have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame! She has been a member of the Grand Ole Opry for over 50 years!

She has and always will be an inspiration to me. She is tough, funny and beautiful. She inspired me so much I wrote a song about her that we are recording and filming a music video to. I hope one day for her to hear it and know how much I love her.
