Country melody icon Loretta Lynn Passes away

I was born a coal miner's daughter in a cabin on a hill in Butcher Holler.

We were poor but we had love.

There were many times when we went to bed hungry and woke up in the middle of the night, at 3 in the morning.

We smell the chicken cooking. Mom would wake us up and let us eat and we would go back to bed.

I don't go out in front of people. I didn't want to - you know, I was really embarrassed and I wouldn't - I would never sing in front of anybody.

Loretta Webb was barely a teenager when she married a 21-year-old ex-soldier named Oliver Lane

They wasted no time having four of their six children and immigrated to Washington state.

It was there that her husband overheard her bedtime lullabies and forced her to start performing publicly.
