"Loretta Lynn" (born April 14, 1935) is an American country singer who was the leading country female vocalist during much of the 1960's and 1970's. In the 1970's she became one of the most famous women in all of America and frequently made "most admired women" polls alongside first ladies and world leaders.

Born to Ted and Clara Webb, "Loretta Webb" (named after movie star actress Loretta Young) grew up in Butcher Hollow, a small mining community in Johnson County, Kentucky, and was married to Oliver Vanetta Lynn (commonly known as "Doolittle", "Doo", or "Mooney") in January, 1948, a few months before she turned 14. Lynn moved to Washington with her husband at the age of 14. The Lynns had four children by the time Loretta was 17, and she was a grandmother at age 29. Loretta always had a passion for music, before getting married she regularly sang at churches and in local concerts. After her marriage she stopped singing in public instead passing her love of music on to her children and singing to them often. At 18 Oliver bought his wife a guitar, which she taught herself to play. {Both Loretta and her husband shared a common ancestor with Daniel Boone.
