Publisher Description

Nashville legend Loretta Lynn tells the story of her rise from deep poverty in Butcher Holler, Kentucky, to the top of the male-dominated country music industry.

Reissued for the fortieth Anniversary of the Oscar-winning, Sissy Spacek-starring film of the same name, Coal Miner’s Daughter recounts Loretta Lynn’s astonishing journey to become one of the original queens of country music.

Loretta Lynn grew up dirt poor in the mountains of Kentucky, was married at fifteen years old, and became a mother soon after. At the age of twenty-four, her husband, Doo, gave her a guitar as an anniversary present. Soon, she began penning songs and singing in front of honky-tonk audiences, and, through years of hard work, talent, and true grit, eventually made her way to Nashville and the Grand Ole Opry, eventually securing her place in country-music history.

Lynn’s prolific and influential songwriting made her the first woman to receive a gold record in country music and got her named the first female “Entertainer of the Year” by the Country Music Association.

This riveting memoir introduces readers to all the highs and lows on her road to success and the tough, smart, funny, and fascinating woman behind the legend.
