Loretta Lynn, the Grammy-winning singer and songwriter, may be one of America’s most well-known musical icons.
The 60-year-old is one of the nation’s biggest stars, with more than 15 studio albums in the top 100 of the charts and 15 chart-topping singles in her catalog. In addition to writing many of America’s signature pop tunes, Lynn has performed under the name Loretta Lynn numerous times, which makes her perhaps the country’s most famous artist of note.
Lynn’s career has taken her all over the world, from the UK to Cuba, where she met her future husband, the Cuban-Spanish musician Ernesto “Che” Guevara. A few years later, she returned to her native Los Angeles for a short tour to record one of her first studio albums: her 1973 self-titled debut album. She went on to record the album that launched a string of successful albums, including the 1986 classic The Band Is Back, as well as an additional disc: 1991’s Heaven, Earth, and Water.
With such a long and successful resume, it should come as no surprise that Lynn was one of the first singers to recognize that there are two sides to every story.
“You’ve got to take the world of music, you’re all from it. It’s not a question of how much you love the art of music, it’s a question of what you love about the world of music,” the now 81 year-old singer told the Guardian in a 2011 piece on music writing and her legacy. “‘And what do you love about the world of music?’ What does every person love about the world of music?
“And that’s what I think.”
While her work in the fields of music and feminism would become major themes in her music in the years ahead, a story Lynn told back in 1973 has continued to speak volumes.
She was sitting in a café in Las Vegas, drinking coffee, and recalling her own childhood at a time before the rise of social media where she could record her voice back down to the original sound of voice so as to make it accessible for people, according to her memoir, In Plain Sight: A Memoir of Childhood,
