About Loretta Lynn
A true icon of country music and American culture, Loretta Lynn, the Coal Miner’s Daughter, is this year celebrating the 50th anniversary of her debut single. A member of the Country Music Hall of Fame and now a four-time GRAMMY honoree after receiving the GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award this year, Lynn began her career with the 1960 success of her debut single, “I’m a Honky Tonk Girl.” The event marked not only the arrival of her distinct voice as both songwriter and performer, but also launched a musical legacy that has included 16 #1 singles, including such classics as “One’s on the Way,” “Don’t Come Home a’Drinkin’ (with Lovin’ on Your Mind),” and her signature song, “Coal Miner’s Daughter.” That song also shared its name with Lynn’s bestselling 1976 autobiography and the Academy Award winning 1980 film starring Sissy Spacek. Loretta Lynn: Coal Miner’s Daughter is being re-issued in paperback by Vintage Books on September 21, with a new foreward by Lynn. Random House Audio will subsequently release the audio edition on CD and digital download on November 2, with narration by Spacek. On October 12, The Recording Academy will host GRAMMY Salute to Country Music, when Lynn will be honored at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium with a star-studded tribute concert and a presentation of The Recording Academy’s President’s Merit Award in recognition of her remarkable career and contributions to country music.
