Billy Ray Cyrus

Tracy Lawrence
“I’m heartbroken to hear of Loretta’s passing. She’s been part of my musical life since birth. My mother was a fan and listened to her music while she was carrying me. In fact, if I’d been born a girl, my mother would’ve named me Loretta Lynn. God Bless you miss Loretta.”

Brandi Carlile
“It occurred to me today, as I was contemplating the loss of our dear and powerful Loretta Lynn, that when she was a younger woman and already a legend, she treated these two women (and many more) the way they now treat me. I’m thinking about Loretta’s family today and her many close friends, but I’m also thinking about my heroes and friends Tanya Tucker and Wynonna as well.”

Barbara Mandrell
“Loretta Lynn contributed enormously to the world of Country Music. All of us adored and loved her.”

Margo Price
“It’s safe to say I wouldn’t even be making country music today if it weren’t for Loretta Lynn. She showed me up what it looked like to be a musician and a mama. Her writing was as real as the day is long. This one hurts on another level. I’ll miss her forever.”

Rhonda Vincent
“Oh my heart is sad to learn that Loretta Lynn has passed away at 90 years old. Sending our love and prayers to her family. The Coal Miners Daughter - Loretta Lynn - April 14, 1932 - October 4, 2022 Rest In Sweet Peace Loretta.”
