Publisher's Summary

Loretta Lynns 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.

loved it

Sissy Spacek did a fantastic job narrating this fun and enjoyable book. Lynn appears to be candid about her life, both good and bad, and provides a bit of insight into the world of country singing. This is a fun read.

nothing new here

Wish I'd known this book was over 30 years ago. I was truly not surprised by anything, except the fact that her husband clubbed a dog to death for barking. Just lost any respect for a man who is questionable in his treatment of his wife, people, and now animals. Uggghhh, disgusted.
