Product Description

Product Description

Loretta Lynn’s classic memoir tells the story of her early life in Butcher Holler, Kentucky, and her amazing rise to the top of the music industry.
Born into deep poverty, married at thirteen, mother of six, and a grandmother by the time she was twenty-nine, Loretta Lynn went on to become one of the most prolific and influential songwriters and singers in modern country music. Here we see the determination and talent that led to her trailblazing career and made her the first woman to be named Entertainer of the Year by the Country Music Association and the first woman to receive a gold record in country music.


The award-winning country singer marks out the roads she's travelled and the stages she's sung on, moving on from Butcher Holler, Kentucky's coal hills to Nashville's Grand Ole Opry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality of the bok 28 Mar 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Loretta Lynn's Coal Miner's Daughter: Book arrived in great condition with just one price tag removed.
I just saw the film again recently with Sissy Spacek. Then I realised it was based on Loretta's own book so I bought it. No time to read yet but I'm sure if it was good enough to make a qulality film like that about, it will be great. Love the albums of both Loretta and Sissy (like Meryl Streep, why those two have not had careers in singing as well as acting, beats me - if Cher could do it!) Really look fwd to reading it.
