MORE INFO ON LORETTA LYNN: Loretta Lynn (born Loretta Webb on April 14, 1934) is anAmericancountry musicsinger-songwriter; she was one of the leading country vocalists and songwriters during the 1960s and is revered as a country music legend.

Lynn ruled the charts during the '60s and '70s, racking up over 70 hits as a solo artist and a duet partner.

With an impoverished upbringing, a troubled yet devoted marriage, chronic illness and exhaustion due to her hectic pace, and several tragedies through the years, Lynn's own life often provided the grist for her popular tunes. Her best-selling 1976 autobiography,Coal Miner's Daughter, was made into a hitAcademy Award-winning film starringSissy SpacekandTommy Lee Jonesin1980.

Although she was out of the loop for a few years while taking care of her husband, who died in 1996, Lynn returned to touring in 1998. In 2000, she released her first album since 1988 to contain original solo material. Including solo and duet work, Loretta Lynn has released 16 number one country hits over the course of her career

Born to Melvin "Ted" Webb (1906?1959) and Clara Marie (Ramey) Webb (1912?1981) and named in honor ofLoretta Young, Loretta Webb was the second of eight children; her youngest sister is country singerCrystal Gayle. She is also, on her mother's side, distantly related to country singerPatty Loveless. Lynn grew up inButcher Hollow, a section ofVan Lear, a mining community nearPaintsville,Johnson County, Kentucky. Her mother, Clara, was ofScots-IrishandCherokeeancestry. Her father, Ted, was acoalminer, storekeeper, and farmer. Growing up with such humble roots had a huge effect on Lynn's life and heavily influenced her music as an adult. Her autobiography describes how, during her childhood, the community had no motor vehicles, paved roads, or flush toilets.

She was married to Oliver Vanetta Lynn, commonly known as "Doolittle," "Doo," or "Mooney" (for runningmoonshine), on January 10, 1948, at 13 years of age. In an effort to break free of the coal mining industry, Lynn moved to the logging communityCuster, Washington, with her husband, at the age of 14. The Lynns had four children - Betty Sue, Jack Benny, Cissy and Ernest Ray - by the time Loretta was 18, and subsequently had twin girls, Peggy and Patsy (named afterPatsy Cline).

Lynn always had a passion for music. Before getting married, she regularly sang at churches and in local concerts. After she married, she stopped singing in public, wishing rather to focus on her family life. Instead, she passed her love of music on to her children, often singing to them around the house. When Loretta was 24, Doolittle bought her a guitar as an anniversary present, which she taught herself to play.

Even though they were married for nearly 50 years and had six children together, the Lynn's marriage was reportedly rocky up to Doolittle's death in 1996. In her 2002 autobiography,Still Woman Enough, and in an interview withCBS Newsthe same year, Lynn recounts how her husband cheated on her regularly and once left her while she was giving birth. Lynn and her husband also fought frequently, but, she said, "he never hit me one time that I didn?t hit him back twice."

Lynn began singing in local clubs and later with a band,The Trailblazers, which included her brother Jay Lee Webb. Lynn appeared in a televisedTacoma,Washingtontalent contest, hosted byBuck Owens, which was seen byNorm Burley, one of the founders ofZero Records.

Zero Records presidentDon Grasheyarranged a recording session inHollywood, where four of Lynn's own compositions were recorded: "I'm A Honky Tonk Girl," "Whispering Sea," "Heartache Meet Mister Blues," and "New Rainbow." Her first release featured "Whispering Sea" and "I'm A Honky Tonk Girl." With their initial support, Lynn went on to become one of country music?s greats.

Lynn signed her first contract on February 1, 1960, withZero Records. She recorded her first release in March of that year, with bandleaderSpeedy Weston steel guitar,Harold Henselyon fiddle,Roy Lanhamon guitar,Al Williamson bass, andMuddy Berryon drums. The material was recorded atWestern Recorders, engineered byDon Blakeand produced by Grashey.

In 1960, under the Zero label, Lynn recorded "I'm A Honky Tonk Girl." The Lynns toured the country to promote the release to country stations, while Grashey andDel Roytook the music toKFOXinLong Beach,California. When the Lynns reached Nashville, the song was a minor hit, climbing to #14 on Billboard's C & W Chart, and Lynn began cutting demo records for theWilburn Brothers' Publishing Company. Through the Wilburns, Lynn was able to secure a contract withDecca Records.

Her relationship with the Wilburn Brothers and her appearances on theGrand Ole Opry, beginning in 1960, helped Lynn become the number one female recording artist in country music. Lynn's contract with the Wilburn Brothers gave them the publishing rights to her material. She was still fighting to regain these rights 30 years after ending her business relationship with them, but was ultimately denied the publishing rights. Lynn stopped writing music in the 1970s because of these contracts.

AlthoughKitty Wellshad become the first major female country vocalist during the 1950s, by the time Lynn recorded her first record, only three other women -Patsy Cline,Skeeter Davis, andJean Shepard- had become top stars. By the end of 1962, it was clear that Lynn was on her way to becoming the fourth. Lynn credits Cline as her mentor and best friend during those early years, and as fate would have it, Lynn would follow her as the most popular country vocalist of the early '60s and, eventually, the 1970s.

Lynn released her first Decca single, "Success," in 1962, and it went straight to Number 6, beginning a string of Top 10 singles that would run through the rest of the decade and throughout the next. She was a hard honky-tonk singer for the first half of the '60s and rarely strayed from the genre. Between this time, Lynn soon began to regularly hit the Top 10 after 1964 with "Before I'm Over You", which peaked at #4, followed by "Wine, Women, and Song", which peaked at #3. In late 1964, Lynn also recorded a duet album with Lynn's idol and Country performer,Ernest Tubb. Their lead single, "Mr. and Mrs. Used to Be" peaked within the Top 15. Together, the pair recorded two more albums, "Singin' Again" (1967) and If we Put Our Heads Together (1969). In 1965, Lynn's solo career continued with three major hits that year, "Happy Birthday", "Blue Kentucky Girl" (later recorded and made a Top 10 hit in the 70s byEmmylou Harris), and "The Home You're Tearing Down". Lynn's label issued two albums that year, Songs from My Heart and Blue Kentucky Girl. While most of these songs were Top 10 Country hits, none of them reached #1.

Her first self-penned song to crack the Top Ten, 1966?s "Dear Uncle Sam?, was among the very first recordings to recount the human costs of the Vietnam War. In the latter half of the decade, although she still worked within the confines of honky tonk, her sound became more personal, varied, and ambitious, particularly lyrically. Beginning with 1966's Number 2 hit "You Ain't Woman Enough," Lynn began writing songs with afeministviewpoint, which was unheard of in country music.

In 1967, she reached #1 with "Don't Come Home A' Drinkin' (With Lovin' on Your Mind)". Lynn's album, Don't Come Home A' Drinkin, went to number one and became the first album by a female country artist to be certified gold. Lynn's next album, Fist City was released in 1967. The title track became Lynn's second #1 hit in early 1968 and the other single from the album, "What Kind of a Girl (Do You Think I Am)" peaked within the Top 10. In 1968 her next studio album, Your Squaw Is on the Warpath spawned two Top 5 Country hits, the title track and "You've Just Stepped In (From Stepping Out on Me)". In 1969 her next single, "Woman of the World (Leave My World Alone)" was Lynn's third chart-topper, followed by a subsequent Top 10, "To Make a Man (Feel Like a Man)".

Lynn was reportedly once inspired to write a song about a real woman who she suspected was flirting with her husband. The song, "You Ain't Woman Enough (To Take My Man)" was an instant hit and became one of Lynn's all-time best. Despite some criticism, Lynn's openness and honesty drew fans from around the nation, including some who were not previously familiar with country music.

Lynn's career continued to be successful into the 1970s, especially following the success of Lynn's hit "Coal Miner's Daughter", which peaked at #1 on theBillboard Country Chartin 1970. "Coal Miner's Daughter" tells the story of Lynn's life growing up in rural Butcher Hollow, Kentucky. The song would later serve as the impetus for the best-selling biography (1976) and the Oscar-winning biopic starringSissy Spacek(1980), both of which share the song's title. The song became Lynn's first single to chart on theBillboard Hot 100, peaking at #83. Lynn would have a series of singles that would chart low on the Hot 100 between 1970 and 1975.

In 1971, she began a professional partnership withConway Twitty. As a duo, Lynn and Twitty had five consecutive Number 1 hits between 1971 and 1975: "After the Fire Is Gone" (1971), "Lead Me On" (1971), "Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man" (1973), "As Soon as I Hang Up the Phone" (1974), and "Feelins'" (1974). The hit-streak kick-started what would become one of the most successful duos of country history. For four consecutive years (1972-1975), Lynn and Twitty were named the "Vocal Duo of the Year" by theCountry Music Association. In addition to their five Number 1 singles, they had seven other Top 10 hits between 1976 and 1981.

As a solo artist, Lynn's career continued to be very successful into 1971, achieving her fifth #1 solo hit, "One's on the Way", written by poet and songwriter,Shel Silverstein. The songs that didn't reach the top spot peaked within the Top 10 during this time, "I Wanna Be Free", "You're Lookin' At Country" and 1972's "Here I Am Again", all released on separate albums. The next year, she became the first country star on the cover ofNewsweek. In 1973, "Rated X" peaked at #1 on the Billboard Country Chart, and was considered one of Lynn's most controversial hits. The next year Lynn's next single, "Love Is the Foundation" also became a #1 Country hit from her album of the same name. The second and last single from that album, "Hey Loretta" became a Top 5 hit. Lynn continued to reach the Top 10 until the end of the decade, including with 1975's "The Pill", considered to be the first song to discussbirth control, other than an obscure 1967 song in French, Pilule d'Or (The Golden Pill) by Luc Dominique, the formerSinging Nun.

Her unique material, which sassily and bluntly addressed issues in the lives of many women (particularly in theSouth), made her stand out among female country vocalists. As a songwriter, Lynn believed no topic was off limits, as long as it spoke to other women, and many of her songs were autobiographical.

In 1977, Lynn recorded Tribute album to friend and Country-pop singer,Patsy Cline, who died in a plane crash in 1963. The album covered some of Cline's biggest hits. The two singles Lynn released from the album, "She's Got You" and "Why Can't He Be You" became major hits. "She's Got You", which formerly went to #1 by Cline in 1962, went to #1 again that year by Lynn. "Why Can't He Be You" peaked at #7 shortly afterward.

Lynn enjoyed enormous success on country radio until the early 1980s, when a more pop-flavored type of country music began to dominate the market. Even so, Lynn was able to stay within the country Top 10 up until the end of the 1970s; however, most of her music by the late '70s had a slick pop sound to it. Lynn had her last Number 1 hit in early 1978 with her solo single, "Out of My Head and Back In My Bed." In 1979, Lynn had two Top 5 hits, "I Can't Feel You Anymore" and "I've Got a Picture Of Us on My Mind," each from separate albums.

Lynn was always adored by her fans while she was touring on her bus named Loretta Lynn. She often would sit for an hour or more on a stage giving autographs to her fans after a performance. Once in Salisbury, Md., the town's newspaper editor interviewed her while she was signing autographs. Editor Mel Toadvine asked her why she took so much time to sign autographs while more than 100 people stood in line all the way to the front of the Wicomico Youth and Civic Center. "These people are my fans," she told Toadvine. "I'll stay here until the very last one wants my autograph. Without these people, I am nobody; I love these people," she said.

In 1976, Lynn releasedCoal Miner's Daughter, an autobiography whose title came from her #1 record of 1970. It became aNew York Timesbestseller and was made into a film in 1980, starringSissy Spacekas Lynn andTommy Lee Jonesas her husband,Doolittle. Spacek won theAcademy Award for Best Actressfor the part. Due mostly to the critical and commercial success of the film, Lynn gained more "mainstream" attention in the early 1980s, starring in two primetime specials onNBC.

The '80s featured more hits ("Pregnant Again," "Naked In The Rain," "Somebody Led Me Away"). Her 1980 and 1981 albums, Loretta and Lookin' Good spawned these hits. Lynn was the first woman in country music to have 50 Top 10 hits. Her last Top 10 record as a soloist was "I Lie" in 1982, but her releases continued to chart until the end of the decade. Lynn continued to have Top 20 hits throughout the 1980s. One of her last solo releases was 1985's "Heart Don't Do This to Me," which reached #19; her last Top 20 hit. In 1993, Lynn stopped releasing singles and focused more on touring than promoting. As a concert artist, she remained a top draw throughout her career, but by the early 1990s she drastically cut down the number of personal appearances due to the fragile health of her husband, who died in 1996.

Lynn's 1985 album, Just a Woman spawned a Top 40 hit. In 1987, Lynn lent her voice to a song onk.d. Lang's album, Shadowland with other Country stars,Kitty WellsandBrenda Leecalled "Honky Tonk Angels Medley".

Lynn's 1988 album Who Was That Stranger would be her last solo album for a major record company until 2004. She remained one of country music?s most popular and well-loved stars. She was inducted into theCountry Music Hall of Famein 1988.

Lynn returned to the public eye in 1993 with the trio album Honky Tonk Angels, recorded withDolly PartonandTammy Wynette, and the following year released a three-CD boxed set chronicling her career. In 1995, she taped a seven-week series on the Nashville Network (TNN) titled Loretta Lynn & Friends, and performed about 50 dates that year as well.[2]The album's charting single, a cover of "Silver Threads and Golden Needles" reached #68. The album became very successful for the trio, peaking at #4 on theTop Country Albumschart and #42 on theBillboard 200and sold enough copies to be certified "Gold" by theRIAAshortly after its release.

In 2000, Lynn released her first album in several years, entitled Still Country. In it, she included a song, "I Can't Hear the Music," as a tribute to her late husband. She also released her first new single in over 10 years from the album, "Country In My Genes". While the album gained positive critical notices, sales were low in comparison with her releases in the 1970s. In 2002, Lynn published her second autobiography,Still Woman Enough, and in 2004, she published a cookbook, You're Cookin' It Country.

In 2004, Lynn made a comeback with the highly successful albumVan Lear Rose, the second album on which Lynn either wrote or co-wrote every song. The album was produced by her "friend forever"Jack WhiteofThe White Stripes, and featured guitar work and backup vocals by White. Her collaboration with White allowed Lynn to reach new audiences and generations, even garnering high praise in magazines that specialize in mainstream andalternative rockmusic, such asSpinandBlender.Rolling Stonevoted the album the second best of the year for 2004. (White has long been an admirer of Lynn and claims she is his favorite singer. He has covered several songs of hers, including the controversial "Rated X.")

Loretta Lynn is working on the follow-up to 2004's Van Lear Rose, plus a new CD of re-recorded versions of her greatest hits over the past 40 years. Both CDs are set for release in 2009.

Lynn has been married only once; to her husband "Doolittle Lynn". They were married in 1949, shortly before she reached the age of 14, in Kentucky. The Lynn family had four children before Loretta turned 18, and then had twins in the early 60s: Peggy and Patsy Lynn. Patsy Lynn wasnamed in honorofPatsy Cline. Lynn's twin daughters formed their own Country music duo group,The Lynns, in 1998 and released two singles off their debut album onReprise Recordsand were nominated for "Vocal Duo of the Year" by the Country Music Association.

During this time, he also appeared on a daytime soap opera,"One Life to Live"(1968) as Dr. Mark Toland from 1971-75. He moved with wifeKate Lardner, granddaughter of short-story writer/columnist Ring Lardner, and her two children from a previous marriage, to Los Angeles.

While working on the movieBack Roads(1981), he met and fell in love with Kimberlea Cloughley, whom he later married.

MORE INFO ON SISSY SPACEK: Mary Elizabeth "Sissy" Spacek (born December 25, 1949) is an American actress and singer. Her screen debut was in the 1972 filmPrime Cutco-starringLee MarvinandGene Hackman.

In the 1970s, she began starring in critically-acclaimed films directed byTerrence Malick,Brian de PalmaandRobert Altman. Her performance as the title character in de Palma's 1976 horror filmCarriemade her famous. She is one of the very few actresses ever nominated for an Academy Award for her performance in a horror film (Carrie).

In 1980, she won theBest Actress Oscarfor her role as country starLoretta LynninCoal Miner's Daughter.She has been nominated a total of 6 times. Spacek is known mainly as a dramatic actress, but has also made comedies. The films Spacek has starred in have earned over $700 million world wide.

Spacek was born inQuitman, Texas, the daughter of Virginia Frances (n?eSpilman) and Edwin Arnold Spacek, Sr., a county agricultural agent. Her paternal grandparents, Mary ?ervenka and Arnold A. ?pacek (who served as Mayor of Granger, Texas in Williamson County), were ofMoravian/Czech/Bohemiandescent. Spacek's mother was from theRio Grande ValleyofTexas. Spacek was given the nickname Sissy by her older brothers. She was greatly affected by the death of her eighteen-year old brother, Robbie, in 1967. Spacek moved toNew York Cityhoping to become a singer. There she lived with her cousin, the actorRip Torn, and his wife, the actressGeraldine Page.

Spacek started out as a singer, recording one single ("John, You've Gone Too Far This Time"), aboutJohn Lennon, an expression of her shock over theTwo Virginscover under the name 'Rainbo'. With the help of her cousin, actorRip Torn, she was able to enroll inLee Strasberg'sActors Studioand then the Lee Strasberg Institute inNew York City.

Her first credited role was in the 1972 cult classicPrime Cut, in which she played Poppy, a young girl sold intosexual slavery. This role led to TV work which included a small role inThe Waltons,where she uttered the well known line "When are you going to stop being John Boy and start being John Man?". But her landmark role of this period and the role that brought her to international attention, came in 1973: Holly inTerrence Malick'sBadlands. As Holly, the 15-year old girlfriend of mass-murderer Kit (played byMartin Sheen). Spacek has described Badlands as the "most incredible" experience of her career. It was on the set of Badlands that Spacek met art directorJack Fisk, whom she would soon marry.

Spacek's iconic and career-defining role came in 1976 withBrian De Palma'sCarrie, in which she playedCarietta "Carrie" White, a shy high school senior and troubled teenager withtelekineticpowers. Spacek had to work hard to persuade director de Palma to engage her for the role, set as he was on an alternative actress, whose identity remains to this day shrouded in mystery. RubbingVaselineinto her hair, and donning an old sailor-dress her mother had made for her as a child, Spacek turned up to the audition with the odds stacked against her, but blew her competition out of the water. She was nominated for theAcademy Award for Best Actressfor her work in the film. (Veteran actressPiper Laurie, who played Carrie's religiously maniacal motherMargaret White, was nominated for theAcademy Award for Best Supporting Actress.)

After Carrie Spacek played the small role of topless house-keeper Linda Murray inAlan Rudolph's ensemble pieceWelcome to LA(1976), but cemented her reputation inindependent cinemainRobert Altman's 1977 classic3 Women. AsPinky Rose,Millie Lammoreaux. Altman himself was deeply impressed by her performance, stating: 'She's remarkable, one of the top actresses I've ever worked with. Her resources are like a deep well.' Meanwhile, de Palma now enthused: 'Sissy's a phantom. She has this mysterious way of slipping into a part, letting it take over her. She's got a wider range than any young actress I know.' Spacek also helped to finance then-brother-in-lawDavid Lynch's directorial debut,Eraserhead(1976), and is thanked in the credits of the film.

In 1979's Heart Beat, Spacek played theCarolyn Cassady, slipping (under the influence ofJohn Heard'sJack KerouacandNick Nolte'sNeal Cassady) into a frustrating combination of drudgery and debauchery.

Spacek began the decade with anOscarin 1980 forCoal Miner's Daughter, in which she played country music starLoretta Lynn. Film criticRoger Ebert
