Loretta Lynn (née Webb; born April 14, 1932) is an American country music singer-songwriter with multiple gold albums in a career spanning almost 60 years. She is famous for hits such as “You Ain't Woman Enough (To Take My Man)”, “Don't Come Home A' Drinkin' (With Lovin' on Your Mind)”, “One's on the Way”, “Fist City”, and “Coal Miner's Daughter” along with the 1980 biographical film of the same name. Lynn has received numerous awards and other accolades for her groundbreaking role in country music, including awards from both the Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music as a duet partner and an individual artist. She is the most awarded female country recording artist and the only female ACM Artist of the Decade (1970s). Lynn, has sold more than 45 million albums worldwide, scored 24 number one hit singles, and 11 number one albums. Lynn continues to tour, appear at the Grand Old Opry and release new albums. She is recognized by the strength and quality of her voice still today, as well as her down to earth, quick wit and humor.

At the height of her popularity, some of Lynn's songs were banned from radio airplay, including Rated 'X'," about the double standards divorced women face; “Wings Upon Your Horns”, about the loss of teenage virginity; and “The Pill”, with lyrics by T. D. Bayless, about a wife and mother becoming liberated by the birth-control pill. Her song “Dear Uncle Sam”, released in 1966, during the Vietnam War, describes a wife's anguish at the loss of a husband to war. It was included in live performances during the Iraq War. In 1971 Lynn was the first solo female country artist to perform at the White House, at the invitation of President Richard Nixon. She returned there to perform during the administrations of Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush. Lynn stated early in 2016 that she supported Donald Trump in his run for the presidency. Though Lynn has been outspoken about her views on often controversial social and political subjects, she stated, “I don't like to talk about things where you're going to get one side or the other unhappy. My music has no politics.” She has visited the White House six times since 1976, under both Republican and Democratic presidents, and in her autobiography, she said her father was a Republican and her mother a Democrat. When asked about same-sex marriage by USA Today in November 2010, she replied, “I'm still an old Bible girl. God said you need to be a woman and man, but everybody to their own.” She endorsed and, along with Peggy Sue and Crystal Gayle, campaigned for George H. W. Bush in the presidential election in 1988. In 2002's Still Woman Enough, she discusses her longtime friendship and support for Jimmy Carter, yet during the same time period she made her only recorded political donations ($4,300) to Republican candidates and Republican-aligned PACs. In 2013, she was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Barack Obama. At other times, she has questioned both political parties: “Dear Uncle Sam” was written in 1966 during the Lyndon B. Johnson administration to “recount the human costs of the Vietnam War”, and she made a return to her live sets during the Iraq War under George W. Bush's presidency. While a recognized “advocate for ordinary women”, Lynn has often criticized upper-middle-class feminism for ignoring the needs and concerns of working-class women. She once stated, “I'm not a big fan of Women's Liberation, but maybe it will help women stand up for the respect they're due”. Along these lines, her music has ranged from “The Pill” and “Rated X” to more culturally conservative gospel albums. She allowed PETA to use her song “I Wanna Be Free” in a public service campaign to discourage the chaining of dogs outside.
