Remembering The Queen Of Country Music At The Grand Ole Opry

|

Earlier this week, the family of Loretta Lynn announced that the “Queen of Country Music” peacefully passed away at her ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee. The 90-year-old Country Music Hall of Famer was known for her hit songs like “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” “You Ain’t Woman Enough,” and “Fist City.”

Not only did she inspire generations of country music fans, but she also paved the way for female country singers.

In the days following her death, fellow musicians, fans, and friends shared heartwarming tributes on social media, and even live on stage at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville—a place near to Lynn’s heart, as she performed there many times and was inducted as a member in 1962.

On October 4, 2022, singer-songwriter Carly Pearce performed her song “Dear Miss Loretta,” and shared a voicemail that she received from Lynn last year.

“Anyway, I love your song. Thank you sweetheart. I love you honey, come and see me sometime,” Lynn is heard saying in the voicemail.

Watch the touching tribute below.

As Pearce said it best, Lynn is now officially the Honky Tonk Angel.
