Happy birthday Loretta Lynn! Her Secret Language Name is “Electric Transition.” She hasn’t exactly had it easy. The Coal Miner’s Daughter went from poverty in Kentucky to Nashville superstar. She helped bring traditional country music to the masses. The First Lady of Country Music grew up in Butcher Hollow, Kentucky, a community that had no paved roads or flush toilets. She was married to 21-year old man when she was just 13, and by 18 was a mother of four. She took her experiences onto the stage. Many of her songs are about what it’s like to be a woman living in the deep South. Her goal was to speak to other women like her.
