Throwback Thursday - Loretta Lynn

Here's another Throwback from my good friend, JNJ!

Known simply as the Queen of Country Music, Loretta Lynn has done a lot in her life. From humble beginnings to having four children before the age of 21 (which was the same age she started learning guitar and writing songs), she has changed the way women are represented in country music. And we are enriched because of that. The awards she has received are too numerous to count. She has written over 160 songs, had 10 #1 albums, 16 #1 hits, but more importantly gave women a voice in the '60s and '70s when they didn't have much of one. And she hasn't quit, as the video below with Jack White has brought her a whole new fan base. 

Here's to the Queen!

The classic, "Coal Miner's Daughter"

With the Legend, Conway Twitty.

Lastly, with the amazing Jack White (one of Hallie's favorite videos of all-time).
