Loretta Lynn

Loretta Lynn is an American singer and songwriter. She rose to fame in the early 1960s, when songs like "Success," "Before I'm Over You" and "Blue Kentucky Girl" landed her on the country music charts. Lynn was named CMA's female vocalist of the year in 1967, 1972 and 1973. Originally released in 1970, "Coal Miner's Daughter," became one of her biggest hits. She had made three albums of duets with Ernest Tubb before recording her first song with Conway Twitty, "After the Fire Is Gone," which topped the charts in 1971 and launched one of the most successful duets in country music history. Lynn and Twitty were CMA's vocal duo of the year from 1972 through 1975. Among their many hits were "Lead Me On," "Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man" and "Feelin's." In 1972 Lynn became the first woman to receive CMA's entertainer of the year award. In 1988, Lynn was inducted into The Country Music Hall of Fame.
