Publisher: Country Music Hall of Fame
Loretta Lynn touches every corner of popular music in America, and her songs have taught us volumes about ourselves. A Country Music Hall of Fame member for her groundbreaking work as a singer and songwriter, Lynn has been a major source of inspiration for artists ranging from Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert, and Kacey Musgraves to Jack White and Exene Cervenka. Lynn's well-documented humble beginnings are the stuff of legend, and as she emerged in the 1960s, her powerfully penned songs not only dominated the country charts, they challenged social norms, often addressing such controversial topics as broken marriages, divorce, birth control, and domestic violence, in ways both natural and defiant.
This book complements the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum exhibition Loretta Lynn: Blue Kentucky Girl and contains rare photos not included in the museum gallery.
