Loretta Lynn’s 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.

This was a great audio book, read by Sissy Spacek, who played Loretta Lynn in the movie version of this book and recreated Lynn's voice and accent so that it sounds perfectly natural and believable. This was easily one of the best readings I've heard yet. The story itself is fascinating and uplifting, as it covers Lynn's rise from poverty to fame. She keeps a level head and displays a charming sense of self. She isn't afraid to do what needs to be done - she both holds to her values and changes when the time is right and life has shown her that change is needed. Very inspiring.more
