Country Star Loretta Lynn Dies At Age 90

By Movieguide® Contributor

Country music star Loretta Lynn has died at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee. She was 90 years old. 

A statement released by her family reads, “Our precious mom, Loretta Lynn, passed away peacefully this morning, October 4th, in her sleep at home in her beloved ranch in Hurricane Mills.”

Lynn rose to fame in the 1960s, and released hit country songs like “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” “You Ain’t Woman Enough (To Take My Man),” and “Fist City.”

Her life was the subject of the 1980 movie COAL MINER’S DAUGHTER, which garnered seven Oscar nominations. It won two categories: Best Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy, and Best Actress. 

Lynn was also a dedicated humanitarian. Movieguide® previously reported:

Country music legend Loretta Lynn recently announced a concert to help aid those affected by the storms and flooding in Tennessee.

Lynn noted that country music staples such as Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Luke Bryan, and Luke Combs would all join her in the show titled “Loretta Lynn’s Freinds Hometown Rising.”

“The flood that devastated our area has been awful, but love is stronger,” the Humphreys County resident tweeted. “I’m so grateful for my friends who are answering my call for us to all pitch in and help every way we can.”

“I am so honored that so many of our friends are coming together to show so much love for our neighbors and community after such a devastating loss,” Lynn, 89, added. “You know, we’ve all needed help from time to time, and that’s why when we can give back, we do.”

The proceeds will support United Way of Humphreys County.

“United Way of Humphreys County has been dedicated to our communities for years, and we established the Humphreys County Flood Relief Fund to get immediate and long-term needs met for all the flood victims,” executive director Nioka Curtis said.

“We had no idea this would be one of the worst floods in our history, but our community will be whole again,” the statement reads. “It’s UWHC’s goal to help make that happen as quickly as possible with the help of our generous donors. From the rental deposits and down payments necessary for people to get re-housed, to remodeling, replacing clothing and rebuilding their lives, we want to make sure their needs are met and we will continue our fight to make that happen.”

According to Humphreys County Sheriff Chris Davis, the record-breaking storms resulted in 22 fatalities in Humphreys County alone.

Lynn’s cause of death has not been released, but the country singer has dealt with health struggles over the last few years. In 2017, she was hospitalized after suffering a stroke in her home. The year after that, she fell and broke her hip. 

Please keep Lynn’s family in your prayers at this time.
