Loretta Lynn, Annapolis, Maryland, 1975

There have been few country stars as popular, and as loved, as the "Coal Miner's Daughter." Lynn's fans lived her life along with her—an ongoing soap opera that included enduring a childhood of poverty, achieving a dramatic rise to stardom, and fighting depression. Hollywood made a movie about her life in 1980 with Sissy Spacek in the starring role. And Lynn had dozens of top-ten hits, many of which she wrote herself, such as "Don't Come Home a Drinkin' (with Lovin' on Your Mind)," "Your Squaw is on the Warpath," "You Ain't Woman Enough (to Take My Man)" and, of course, her signature "Coal Miner's Daughter."
