Country artist Loretta Lynn was born in April of 1932 to a coalminer, storekeeper and farmer. In 1959, she began her singing in local clubs. Later, she formed her band The Trailblazers, which also featured her brother Jay Lee Webb. Lynn made an appearance in a televised Tacoma, Washington talent contest, hosted by Buck Owens, where she was discovered by Canadian Norm Burley, who recorded four of Lynn’s compositions. Throughout the following years, Lynn would go on to sign her first contract, release numerous studio albums, peak at Number One over twenty times with her singles and win and be nominated for countless awards, including becoming a member of the Grand Ole Opry in 1962.
